There's a first time for everything...

Tonight was the first hardcore thunderstorms /diversion/craziness night of the year around these parts. I was lucky and worked alot of D-sides early on when it was busiest. I was able to fully take in all the chaos around me.

While the madness of thunderstorm season isn't new, this night created a situation that was so rare it may have never happened before in the history for Boston ATC: Miles in Trail to ZOB (Cleveland Center) for JFK arrivals! The big board showed dozens of Kennedys inbound from Europe rerouted into my area over SYR, direct a VOR southwest of us, and then back into New York from the west. Observe the glory here and here.

Till next time...
