    I’m pissed-off.
    Where is the Calif. National Guard with vitally needed supplies for the folks trapped under 10 and 12 feet of snow in the Sierras?
    Some of which need life-saving medications just to stay alive, not to mention food and fuel to battle the cold.
    Where are the Blackhawks (helicopters) to chopper in the desperately needed stuff?

    SMH…. Ever flown low altitude over the Sierras in bad weather? Sometimes it simply cannot be done.

    pstrmike…thanks for your comment!

    I am a Meteorologist that specializes in aviation meteorology and anyone who flies any kind of aircraft will tell you that flying around a mountainous region can be quite challenging in certain kinds of weather. This ranges from the small 2-seat prop planes to commercial jets. We all know there have been MANY fatal aircraft incidents due to something as innocuous as cloud cover and precipitation, nevermind high winds, turbulence, thunderstorms, etc. Even in clear skies there can be a very uncomfortable, and potentially dangerous, level of turbulence present.

    Those people should have been prepared, even if the last time this happened was in April of 83. Mountain living is grand, but people need to be prepared for when it isn’t.

    Dan, flew from Denver to Colorado Springs along the eastern slope of the Rockies – roughest flight I ever had! ! !

  8. Dan from Georgia says:

    Em, I don’t doubt that at all. The Rockies in Colorado, especially the zone you mentioned, is notorious for horrible turbulence.
