I just logged into Duats to check my prospects of getting out of IND tommorow (12/17) and this is what I found:

Indianapolis IN [IND]: URGENT pilot report
at Shelbyville [SHB VOR] at 9:00pm EST (0200Z), at 11,000 feet a McDonnell-Douglas MD-80/81/82/83/87/88 reported turbulence severe turbulence 185 - 110 ... PILOT SOUNDED quite NERVOUS .. having hard time KEEPING WINGS level .. Indianapolis Center (IN) Center Weather Service Unit

Looking out my window, it's a defination to the "T" for a blizzard. Looks like I'm going nowhere tommorow.   Another fun day in the dorms.

You need either a Student pilot certificate or license to log onto DUATS. I have not really got into using duats, I like using the phone while I walk out to my plane!

I do both. I like having a second opinion. Those FSS guys are pretty knowledgeable. They have many of time saved me the trouble of trying to fly in a soupy weather (when the vis has been 3 miles or slightly above).

I use both Duats and FSS.

Remember, or hear about the UA flight on it's way to HKG a couple of weeks ago from SFO that hit severe turbulence near Anchorage? A few people were injured and the aircraft diverted to ANC. Well, I was flying behind that aircraft maybe half an hour later while the 744 was dumping fuel. We got the turbulence warning, and felt very uneasy flying towards it, but fortunately nothing happened!
