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.
