windy highway in wintertime

Windy driving

Wind is one driving condition we seldom think about, yet it can be extremely challenging, especially when it comes with other weather conditions. On it’s own, wind can also make driving very hazardous. In the mountains, winds can whip up at the drop of a hat, as it moves around hills, and races through valleys. A strong head wind will wreak havoc with both your fuel economy and your schedule.  It can also alter the road surface if the temperature is close to the freezing mark, by lowering the temperature of bridge surfaces, so they freeze over before the...

Breaking up is hard to do

Controllers usually work rotating shifts nights, weekends, and all public holidays. The schedules are usually set 28 days in advance. In many countries, the structure of controllers' shift patterns is regulated to allow for adequate time off. There is widespread recognition that Air Traffic Controllers must have breaks. Unfortunately, when we take a break, stress follows. We really can’t go anywhere without stress being involved.
