T.Y. — It’s (obviously) something we all pretty much know. It’s also something that we need to be reminded about. Your narrative was enjoyable. It matched perfectly with the message. Thanks for making the effort.

Regardless of whether we would individually have made this flight or done things differently, thanks for sharing. It isn't easy to share things like this but it benefits us all.

We are really glad that you made it down OK, but you should not have got into that situation in the first place, Poor Pilot Flight preparation, you should always know your Local Weather before Take Off, you might not be so lucky next time.
