Tomorrow (Saturday) morning, the kiddoes and I were supposed to fly to DuBois Regional Airport (KDUJ) to visit my parents. Here is the prog chart for the time we're to be airborne:
As you can see, we're forecast to have a nasty mix of marginal VFR and IFR weather along with some rain between Chicago and Western Pennsylvania. Grandma is already disappointed and the kids will be in the morning when I don't wake them up at 6 am.
I've been looking forward to this in part because KDUJ was built on my great-grandparent's farm that was commandeered by the federal government because it seemed like a swell place to put an airport. I also have heard that until recently there was a tree near one end the runway that my father fell out of and broke his arm as a kid.
Of course, if I had that instrument rating this would all be of little consequence. Well, there is that freezing level and turbulence... but the latter clears out by the next chart.
