What is missing is the snow. This time of year we usually have a good ground cover of snow. We have had a lot of rain and snow but it is too warm.
Runway numbers. In aviation we use numbers a lot, airspeed, stall speed, altitude, distance, just about everything has numbers. These are the runway numbers at our home runway. 34 stands for 340 degrees.
