Good 32º high fog morning.
Driving in Southern California has not been safe.....
Yesterday the I-5 over the Grapevine was shut down due to heavy snow starting about 10pm Christmas night. One of the busiest travel days! Apparently it's still closed today so far.
And there was even a tornado warning for the Santa Barbara County!!
Picture of the Day ... US soldier's last name is Canada!!
Interesting about first airplane flight...
The first flight was flown by Orville Wright and lasted 12 seconds. On this day in 1903, Orville Wright piloted the first successful flight in history of a self-propelled airplane 20 feet above a beach near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The inaugural flight lasted 12 seconds and covered 120 feet. Three more flights were made that day with Orville's brother Wilbur piloting the longest one which lasted 59 seconds over a distance of 852 feet. The historic Wright brothers’ aircraft of 1903 is on permanent display at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
