The Hawk Has Been Grounded

DOWNTOWN, NJ -- With the weather forecast in Downtown, NJ predicting 8"-12" of snow before it all ends, the tower has denied clearance for the Hawk to take off. Although the ground is barely wet here at 3:30 PM, bird watchers are predicting that by flight time there will be so much snow on my wings that I won't get enough lift to become airborne. With any luck I'll be cleared for take off by Monday.

And so the adventure begins! Sorta.

Hopefully you have enough food in the house, right? Milk, bread....

I remember those snowy NJ days.... this is supposed to be a pretty big storm. Take care of yourself!

Actually, at flight time there was only about an 1" or so on the ground, but I'm so glad I got to stay home and shovel... yeah, right!

Thanks. We'll be just fine. We now have about 12" and it's still snowing. Should be over in a few hours.

Of course! I should have known it was all Bush's fault for not signing the Kyoto Protocol back in 1997. Oh, wait... that was Billy boy... nevermind.

Have Ground Control line you up behind a heavy jet like they always do me.

Be glad that you are not caught up in the protest-fest at Trafalgar Square.

BBC said the protests at Trafalgar Square were peaceful and controlled. Sounds OK to me.
