Agreed

I second that one. The whole day was slightly overcast but no reason why a chopper pilot couldnt fly. Must have been an inexperience crew but than again civilian aircraft don't fly these days in an autumn breeze.

Stormy Weather

I am not sure who named this morning's weather as "stormy." I live on the west end of Ramona. We are having low clouds and misty (very misty) moisture. There is no wind at all. I assume that the medical helicopters must have difficulty with "poor visibility" and not with stormy weather.
