O.k., this is going to be a short post . . . I’ve been anxiously wanting to write about this for days now but haven’t had time . . .
For the past 10 days now, I’ve been neurotically checking the weather. By “neurotically” I mean at least 6 or 8 times a day, sometimes hourly. It simply CANNOT rain this coming Thursday, March 21.
March 21, the day after tomorrow is my son’s 16th birthday. He plans to celebrate by taking his solo flights in both an airplane and a helicopter. Soloing on your 16th birthday is a HUGE aviation tradition – one that’s hard to achieve. Soloing in both an airplane and helicopter on your 16th birthday is pretty rare – super hard to achieve!
So, it simply cannot rain. Because he cannot fly in the rain. Here’s how the forecast looks at the moment:
See why I’m more than a little nervous? See why WeatherUnderground.com is constantly open on my computer?
He has worked so, so hard for this. He understands, of course, that we can’t control the weather, but he’ll be disappointed if he misses this milestone on his actual birthday.
So please!!! Join me in my prayers for sun! Or do a Sun Dance!!! Or just send good, anti-rain vibes our way!!! Thanks!
