Boredom strikes again
Weather induced boredom strikes Little Rock again. For the second time in three weeks, we have had a day canceled due to wintery weather. Although we did not get much freezing rain or sleet this time, the entire area shutdown because of the several inches of snow. The thing is, 2-4 inches of snow is not a big deal, but when you don't have the capability to clean it up and everyone already sucks at driving, it makes for a huge mess. The base closed down and basically so did the surrounding area. I did manage to be a little productive. I did a few computer lesson's called CBT's, or computer based training. After that, it was horrible. A friend and I headed out to get some food for lunch. At this point it was a full blown snow storm, with heavy wet snow. On our way out of the base, a car slid into the median. Being the gentlemen that we were, or just a lack of better things to do, we helped pull her out with his 4x4 duelly. We then proceeded to get some lunch. We spent a couple hours eating simply because there was nothing else to do. Anyway, here is a picture of the C-130 static display in the snow.
I am an Air Force pilot flying the mighty C-130 in Little Rock, Arkansas. I am a southern California boy who desperately misses the ocean, but God is giving the opportunity to spread my wings in other places. It should be good times that I'll share with you.
