I usually don’t mind driving through snow but that was dangerous driving for a while until the roads got cleared. Had to wait it out at a truck stop.Keep it out there please.

Vis was good in Des Moines IA and dropped to barely seeing anything in front of you 45 min North.
It was pretty bad in WI as well. It started off as rain, then freezing rain and followed up with sleet / hail. At that point it doesn't matter if you have 4x4 or not.Yeah, I did three spins (one three separate times) and had enough. Got off at the first opportunity. This is why I drive alone!
I was standing on the ramp making a phone call when one of the guys came taxiing in, and all I could think was “holy crap, am I really that loud?” as I quickly walked back inside. It was a good reminder of why I spend less than 2 minutes on the ramp whenever possible.
Manila is also good for thatThanks to @ChasenSFO I embraced my inner 13 year old boy in Hong Kong last week.

Probably just raises the flaps in the flare?I gotta ask - is it hard to land an amphib like that on pavement? Seems like you don't have a lot of room for error on your pitch attitude as you bring it in.
