Flying So it's been about 2 years since I last went up in a light aircraft with an instructor to log time toward my private rating.

I went in yesterday (Saturday 5/20) to make an appointment; scheduled myself for 14:00 today, on what was forecast to be a nice VFR day (well, scattered thunder storms, but they were moving slow and I figured I'd be well on the ground before they popped up around the field.

WRONG! I showed up around 13:45 and met my instructor (nice guy, kinda cute... perhaps taking flying lessons while single is not a good idea? :-P). We headed out to preflight the aircraft...
And walked right into a squall line.

Needless to say, we agreed that todays flight would be better off scrubbed and rescheduled. I will be going up Tuesday evening at 18:00.

Expect to see something on here after that, assuming I manage to keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down.
