Yesterday afternoon's flight was entertaining, if a bit long. N631S and I were off of Runway 24 at KBDR at 1717 local time in moderate rain. We went hard IMC at about 1,500 feet and stayed that way for about 1.5 hours. The rain pretty much stopped above 3,000 feet but the clouds were solid until nearing Allentown when it opened up into this:

From there on the flight was in visual conditions. But there were isolated cells of weather to be seen on the Garmin GPS396's XM Weather display. I kept an eye on those with the intention of requesting a course deviation from ATC if needed to avoid the stronger returns -- but in the event, my course never went through any weather during the second half of the trip.

We landed at KVKX at 2000 local time.
