might get a little windy. You might be able to fly your profile without havig to crank the engine. So no fear of deadsticking

Good luck with Charlie. Looks like a strong one. Make sure and tigh those planes down.

Here in the Pensacola area (FL) it is sunny, light wind, low humidity, and the navy is not flying so all the fields are open!! I am heading out to fly right after work.

This morning would have been good for flying in Orlando area. I chose to batten down the hatches instead. I had a hunch Charlie might take a jog East and it looks like I was right. Hopefully tomorrow the weather will be O.K. and everyone and their houses still intact. Thanks, Paul, for the prayers. They will be needed by many as the day goes on.

Well, most of it is past us now, only about another hour of wind to go! eye passed about 15 miles east of us, winds 60-70 m.p.h. for an hour or so! didn't lose power or shingles, though. I feel sorry for the people in port charlotte, it wasted that place.

should be calm tomorrow, am going to stuart to corrupt my brother-in-law; he says he wants to get a trainer.... and so it starts! will have him in profiles in a year![8D]

How about a Burrito on low rates for a trainer? Personally, I never DID learn to fly a trainer. Still can't. Once I got a more maneuvarable plane, things started to gel. I need a plane thet can get out of trouble as fast as I can get IN it, which is pretty fast.
BTW- I have friends in Port Charlotte- hope they're O.K. at any rate, Glen has his work cut out for him. He's in charge of all the traffic lights in Lee County [X(]
