New Year's Day Flight to Gladwin, MI - Fly Girl Journal
Share this page on: 
According to our local Channel 8 Meteorologist Bill Steffen, the Grand Rapids area had about half of the normal average total possible sunshine in December. Now given the fact that December is typically our cloudiest month, that is pretty grim. Our total sunshine amounted to roughly 9%. According to Bill, that was only about 25 hours of sunshine for the entire month! I'm not trying to be a negative-Nancy or anything, but fact is, December was 91% gray, gloomy, cloudy, snowy, icy,frozen, cold, wet, sloppy, (and many other adjectives that are not family friendly.) Just not very conducive to roaring around in an airplane.

When New Year's Day greeted us with bright blue, sunny skies, my husband Randy and I scrambled to sneak in a flight before it all came crashing down again - which it did - the very next day.
