Up In Upper Michigan
A go/no-go decision often rests on destination weather. But conditions at the departure point can also make or break a flight. Would you take off in LIFR?
For those unfamiliar, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan boasts generous lengths of shoreline off Lake Superior, scenic byways, and lots of trees. While it can be a winter wonderland during the off-season, itís not unusual to have many days of dreary gray skies and fog that wears away the most sanguine spirit. Itís the kind of weather that gets us burning through a whole morning figuring out how to get out, around and back without getting stuck who-knows-where. Welcome to the UP.
