Nice cockpit video of a Lufthansa A380 on the visual approach to 28R at SFO.

Nice video Steve.
Looks like it was the inaugural A380 from FRA to SFO given the water cannon salute.

We survived just fine in western Mass. Measured 30" in the back yard, very little drifting and no power loss. Dug out myself and my neighbor early this morning but had to wait for the town to plow out my road before heading out to work. Left a mild batch of chili at the house for my wife and son. The "firehouse special" is simmering away in a crock pot here at the station. Passed by my FiL's house on the way to work...he was clearing snow with his Cat D4...gotta love an old operating engineer.

Count thy blessings. Our local utility (FPL) had some terrible wiring done right outside our house, and in the 30 or so months we've lived here, we've probably spent a full five to six weeks running only on generator power. Hopefully they've fixed it all by now... and I definitely know the thing works.

Sorry, no TOPP from me tonight... already in bed, swyping on my phone with only one eye open. Today has ended for me already. I'll be back tomorrow.



That is a LONG TIME Rodolfo !! Fortunately I shouldn't wouldn't notice being on emergency pwr and I just expect it to work flawlessly that long continously .. the generator self tests every Sunday at 12.25 for 10 minutes and runs so quietly I have to make an effort if I'm home to see if it's running. I also had it connected to the cities natural gas line so I wouldn't have to deal with more aesthetics of the propane tank, renting / filling / burying line for a propane tank, so barring something catastrophic - loss of just city power wouldn't cause me any hardship I'm aware of. The entire house less the living room lights where we don't spend any time anyway is wired to the generator - even all of the flatscreens and the computer network are working.

it's good to have priorities...lol. Kidding.

In all honesty, I make a lot of winter jokes given the Canadian part of me, but this looks to be quite the storm. Our city here is really well equipped to handle something like this, hope you folks out east have the same. I know in Vancouver if they get 2 inches of snow they shut the city down.

I've also never lost power from a snow storm, but 90% of our power lines are buried under ground.

That is a pretty cool video stevez - those are some skilled auto pilot programmers. I bet they are great Cirrus pilots too!

Anybody know the origin of the water cannon salute?

For sure .. wasn't a passing thought to spend the cash on this .. but I am happy I have it whether I use it or not ! A friend / Master Electrician at work sells - installs them so the price was pretty good and a another factor was they were offering 5 year warranties versus 3 years when I bought it. Now they give 5 yr with 20Kw and I'm betting in a year that will be standard starting at the 8Kw I have. I remember a year ago in a rain storm power went out for 2

Never hurts to remind us of their continuing sacrifices Curtis. God bless and keep every one of them around the world.

Spent a month in Calgary one day in February. It was minus something degrees. I figure once it is below 20 it doesn't matter how low it goes or whether it is C of F! That is too cold. There was only about 2 inches of ice on the ground, it looked like snow, but it was frozen solid.

Spend a month in Duluth MN one week. Never got above 17 F. There was 4 feet of snow on the ground. That town doesn't slow down in the winter. I could drive that little Dodge K car down and up the hill to the base (opposite side of the Duluth Airport) in the morning and evening with no fear. The only thing was, the restaurants were very hot, at least 80. I would wear a T shirt with my down coat in, then take off the jacket and eat my T-shirt, nearly sweating. My hotel room was linked to a hallway that was so warm, I ran my A/C to get the temp to 70. Every day the cleaning crew would come in and turn the heat up to 80. And those guys complained about the heat when they came to Houston!

In other news:
We found a migrant at the farm Thursday. He has been trying to acclimate to our GSD. So far, the GSD is top dog. He is a beautiful 1 year old Chocolate Lab. He is too good of a dog to take to the shelter, so we are looking for a new home.

We visited the city of Prague a few years ago, in February. It was very cold and snowy the Czech people do the same thing, they wear huge jackets and coats with t-shirts underneath, and all the bars and restaurants are super-warm. It was pretty nice to be honest.

Thought I was meeting some wildlife photogs today -- but I was a day early
so I went by the local airports and found these two units ..

Mitsubishi






Bell






The Bell is a little unique as it has a cable cuttin' kit on it .. running down the center of the cockpit glass is a hidden hacksaw blade.

Those are professional autopilot programmers.

Happy Birthday to Jay, and kudos to Jan-Arie for remembering! I don't even notice my own birthday, and would love to remember others' dates more easily, so I'm grateful for the reminder.

May your hands be as steady and your eyes as sharp for many decades to come, my friend.
