I saw some marginal weather aheadI knew that I had to do something about it
Despite accepting the clearance , I thought twice about climbing into itI told ATC that I couldn’t comply and why.
I didn’t panic*I knew I had to make a decision and quickly
I used reasonably good radio work to tell ATC what I neededI didn’t panic*
I turned back and reoriented myself with regard to the course I needed to flyI understood what ATC were telling me to do and where they wanted me to go
I didn’t panic*
I re-entered the circuit and flew a reasonable approach
I even had enough nerve to attempt a short field landing
I nailed that sucker!
I did good!
* I am immensely proud of this fact
