Beechtalk Site is down

The ice storm in Kentucky has knocked Beechtalk (www.beechtalk.com) off. Here's the message at www.beechtalk.com.

---------

A major ice storm hit Paducah, Ky yesterday where our server is located. Almost everywhere is without power, phone, or internet. I am working on configuring a new server for BeechTalk and hope to have it running soon. Please check back and sorry for the inconvenience.

PS - I blame Jeff Snyder.

That storm also knocked my husbands project for a loop today.

Little ice...

Ah, Beechtalk is back up, but it lost the posts from the last two days.

Thanks Tom!

It wasn't too bad here in Steeler Town, but it got messy enough they
cancelled schools. Very happy I have the 4WD Subaru wagon - I helped a guy
with a front wheel drive out of our driveway this afternoon.

Wasn't too bad here in Yankee town but it got messy enough they cancelled schools. Very happy I have my wife's 4WD Subaru wagon to take to work.

Hey, Go Steelers!

It's not looking likely. The Boss has left for Portland to help with another
grandbaby (daughter has an out of town meeting). I could come over for the
couple of hours, but staying overnight is too much for just me by myself.
Car, room, arrangements here for the dog, etc.

I told her to put it on her schedule for May though (I think that's the next
5th Sat).

That weather sure looks a whole lot better than last time though. I think
when I landed it was just above minimums on the approach. I'm not sure I
could find the airport in severe clear!

My wife liked my Outback enough that she bought her own a year later!

Just back from McMinnville OR - freezing fog and 800 RVR when United landed
me at PDX Thursday.

Best,
Jay

Jay, if you see Watts Humphries, tell him Dick Bevier's wife died last week
at 81. Dick died a year ago. He had been confined to a secure nursing home
for many years, suffering from a violent Alzheimer's disease. He deserved so
much better. The finest manager I ever worked for.

I had never been to the Beech site.

Amazing stuff you can learn there....

Did you see that Dave S. used to have a 64 409 Chevy..!

( Dave, I had a friend with a 63 '09, when the song came on,"She's real fine my 409", you didn't want to be in the car with him....I can still hear the sound of those 2 "C" series AFBs..!BWWWOOOOOoooooo)

Re: Beechtalk Site is down

That was a heck of a car Jeff! Wish I would have taken better care of it <g>, Unfortunately, at the time, I just wasn't doing well and couldn't properly take care of it.

Black with bucket seats and four speed. Will always remember that one.

Ran a friend with a GTO one night who didn't believe I had an '09! We ran gear for gear up to about 90. What a kick.

That was one problem with it; folks always wanted to see how fast it was and I was too accommodating. Got a few tickets and couldn't afford the money or trouble that came with them.

Went in the Army; sold the car and didn't need one for awhile.

Best,

Dave

That ch. 9 on United is really great! Copied a discussion about the op specs
for United and Southwest (600 and 700 RVR respectively).

Wilco. I see his boss, Paul Nielsen, quite a bit because we are on the same
NRC panel at the moment.

SWA does it hand-flown with a HUD. That must look iinteresting from the F/O's seat--which doesn't have a HUD!
