Sun, Airplanes, and other Good Things

Summer finally arrived in Victoria a few days ago (we appear to have skipped spring entirely…), and there’s really no finer place to be on a sunny day than out at a busy airport. If you don’t believe me, try it some time – ideally, at an airport lucky enough to have a cafe or restaurant with a nice airside patio.

Summer does have one disadvantage, though: really boring METARs like CYYJ 090300Z 18002KT 30SM FEW250 22/12 A3011 RMK CI1 SLP195 which basically says it’s warm, clear and there’s not even any wind to deal with… a pleasant change from the winter’s long, complex reports of all sorts of foul weather!
