It's an AmTrak Day

It's better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air, than the other way around. Or so I've been told.

This is the sky over Bridgeport, just a couple of miles from KBDR. That's about a 2,500 foot ceiling, and it's pretty representative of the whole northeast. The area forecast predicts tops at 8,000 to 10,000. Freezing levels are at 1,000 to 4,000 feet and that more or less tells the tale. Widespread icing conditions are not something either N631S or I can deal with so it's the train for me this weekend.

Of course, the forecast for Monday morning, when I will need to return to Connecticut, calls for fine, clear weather.
