Many (Many!) years ago I went to class for a week to learn how to become a certified weather observer. The airline that I worked for needed weather people. At the time I was living in Dutch Harbor (Deadliest Catch) and there were three airlines that flew in to Dutch Harbor. Each airline had their own. (Nobody trusted the other airlines for a weather observation I guess!)
I learned all kinds of stuff. One thing that I learned was about thunderstorms and embedded thunderstorms. Not that we really had that in Alaska. Alaska does not often have all the right weather ingredients for a thunderstorm.
Tonight, while I was out sitting with my goats, I watched a weather front move toward me. I recognized the classic anvil clouds and saw a whole line of embedded thunder storms. Then the clouds were over me and it started to rain......hard! Got the goats put away and ran into the house.
When you have a job that depends on the weather like aviation, you become a weather watcher as bad weather meant a bad day at the office. You learn quick that minimum flying weather is a great weather day! As long as your flight can depart, all is well in your world. (Then in a few hours you have to worry about if they can land.)
