So nice to see sun out today after having rain for 10 out of last 15 days. Wind is def helping to dry things out 

I do feel bad for those that lost power and especially the ones that had trees either slam into their house or car but like you, I chose to find a positive with the wind and it does dry the surface out appreciably.   And yes, the sun shining was nice for a change.  My sister lives in Richmond and she's been ranting about the rain for some time now.  Can't say I blame her...it's been relentless for almost a year.   I keep waiting for some met or poster here to tell me that the long range Spring/Summer outlook is for drier than normal conditions.   That would be a symphony to my ears.

Dear lord. Good luck on that landing. Hope everyone has turbulence bags available...

Actually, it wasn't bad.  It was a bit bumpy on approach, but otherwise, nothing special.

Glad to hear it, I’ve had some awful landings in the wind at bwi over the years.
