      The flight was today - very last minute posting on my part...

      Was expecting bumps out of PHX on the climb out and while we cut across New Mexico. Really no surprise there. Expected the seat belt sign to be on the whole time but the Captain turned it off over western New Mexico for a few minutes. Seemed a bit odd.

      Seat belt sign came back on over central New Mexico and remained on for the balance of the flight.

      Entered Kansas at the extreme SW corner of the state and then transversed it laterally - I would consider the turbulence to be light chop and light turbulence - the seat belt sign was on the entire time - but the FAs remained standing and drink service continued (my light versus moderate cut off is usually when the FAs stop service and take their seats).

      The PIREPs map didn't really indicate the level of turbulence that I expected...

      Things smoothed out over Missouri with periods of chop and light turbulence.

      A few bumps over Columbus, OH but being a Penn State grad, nothing surprises me while I'm in Ohio State airspace.

      All in all, not a bad flight although a bit tough to predict, at least on my part...

        That's my litmus test for turbulence as well. If the crew is moving around, it's probably light, despite what people might think of. In my mind the scale goes like this:

        Real light -> perceived moderate
        Real moderate -> oh my god
        Real severe -> we are gonna die

        And it's hard to predict sometimes, as you know. It's not any easier for me, sadly
