I hate this weather. Not because it's cold, not because it's wet, not even because it turns flying into a pure mode of transport (IFR) rather than a semi-recreational scenic tour. I hate this weather because I hate the thought of the aeroplane sitting out in the wind and rain with no protection other than a Cambrai cover.
The cover's fine, but it isn't a replacement for a nice, dry hangar. I know that I could move the aeroplane to an airfield with hangarage, and I know the decision to become a strip flyer was mine, but it doesn't stop me feeling somewhat sorry for the collection of aluminium bits that I've shared many adventures with.
