Today we finally got some good weather again, after all of the rain and very high winds of sandy and the other storms that have moved through recently. So, I got up and got the frost off of the Warrior and was on my way to Bolton near Columbus, OH by 9 am. The conditions were perfect on the way up, clear skies and unlimited visibility, with just a hint of a northerly wind. I made good time up, and turned right around. Amazingly, by the time I’d turned around there was a layer building just southwest of Columbus about 3,500′. I couldn’t tell how far it went, so I descended below it, but as it happens, it was only a few miles wide, and the skies cleared right back up. All and all it was a nice flight, and completes my solo requirements for towered airports. Now I just need a few more total solo hours, and to sharpen up for the test. I’d hoped to be done by the first of November, but I’m not far off now.
