Autumn, the calm before the proverbial storm

Posted on December 03, 2009 12:00 am by in Weather

As the leaves change and the frost forces us to scrape our car windows, we in CAK operations prepare for battle. The battle I'm referring to is us vs. old man winter. Every year I'm asked, "What kind of winter are we going to have?" My response is always, "I'll let you know in April."

Fall gives us the opportunity to finish the last of the mowing, painting and paving before winter. We also take the next 30 days or so to catch up on all the FAA required training for our staff. There is a lot of training involved to battle winter! You may be wondering what I mean. Well, here is a little taste- snow and ice control plan review, driver's training, airfield condition reporting and finally the ultimate-- how to plow snow (this isn't a Wal-Mart parking lot, ya know).

Are we ready for battle? Of course! I wish it would hold off until January but the weather has been nice so we have the time needed to prepare. Will we prevail? Absolutely! See you after the storm in April.

@harrison_a_miller got a great shot of an MV-22B Osprey passing though CAK! It was an HMX-1 of the Marine Corps squadron that’s responsible for transporting VIP’s. 😎📷🚁 #planespotting #planespotter #avnerd #cakairport #abetterwaytogo #osprey #airportlife #avgeek #aviation #aviationspotter #avaiationdaily #thingsthatfly

No, thanks. I don't like to save money on airfare.
