I had hoped to get another flight off Saturday morning. The weather was looking not too bad - there was some precipitation north of the airport, but it seemed to be staying north. I drove to the airport, only to find that the runway was 100% ice covered. It had been quite cold for several days, but Saturday morning the temperature was just above freezing. The air was very moist, and I think the moisture was freezing on the cold runway. My car was sliding all over the place just driving around on the ramp, and there was a 90 degree crosswind, so I cancelled the planned flight. Today was a write-off, as we got hit by a nasty mix of snow, freezing rain and rain.

I've got a training simulator every day Monday thru Thursday, and a King Air proficiency flight all day on Friday. So, the next chance to go flying is next weekend.
