First time in Florida

#1
Just moved to SW Florida!
My first flight didn't end too well. Not used to the wetness compared to Texas :p
The Camera is fine so far!

Kinda a wet welcome to Florida for sure. Probably just trying to get you used to the Summer rains that we have. I offer a dry handshake and Welcome you to S.Florida. The only thing we have here bigger then in Texas is probably the mosquito count. lol What area did you move too? Im on the Dade/Broward line and I-95 pretty much.

Keep flying w/o fear, but watch out for those storms -- people have been struck by lightning with blue sky overhead.

They also have a WICKED wind front. Was in a shorter-than-planned landing in a full-scale Cessna 172 from one of these thundercells. On the ground prior the sky looked grey, but not bad, and once we got above the treeline we couldn't get back down fast enough -- until we got down too fast. These winds will think nothing of A/C of *ANY* size.
