I flew to Oshkosh yesterday and think it was a much better day for going past Chicago than today! SEE “WIND SHEAR”.  Although it lets up some after 10 AM EDT this would have been a bumpy hand full!

I’m happy all those Cubs are on the ground at AirVenture this morning and not still trying to make their way around the Chicago area. For the rest of you, take a look at this.
