Stupid Clouds... Stupid Wind

Well my flight yesterday got canceled because the ceiling was only 3000 feet. The instructor, rightly, wanted some more altitude to play around with since we would be doing stalls and steep turns and such.

I thought that today would be OK to go, but no such luck, we have enough altitude, but the winds are gusting to almost 28 knots, way past my airplane's crosswind component of 17 knots. Maybe later on in the week...

Now that I am thinking about it, perhaps I should just do a bit of studying and do my biannual flight review at the same time. You cover roughly the same amount of material, and it will save me from having to pay for the instruction later on. Then again... I probably need the extra instruction.
