Trying to get home in reduced ceilings and viz.

We headed home at 3:45 and only got 30 miles before being forced to do the proverbial 180-degree turn and land at Bloomfield, IA. The visibility was dropping to the point that I thought we better be on the ground because the Fairchild has no instruments to be tooling around in the clouds. We waited on the ground for 45 minutes. Sky found this mower and decided he'd get a job mowing for gas money. It cleared off a little so we launched and headed straight east to get around the showers and then turned towards the good visibility and home.
