Today was somewhat of an emotional roller coaster. This morning the weather was dreary and we knew it was not likely we would fly so we were disappointed as you can imagine. Then it started to lift and we were called to suit up and the fire drill ensued as we proceeded to get suited up and load the plane while our spirits soured with excitement. We were going to be on the glacier soon! But we were told to stand by, which we did until the flight was scrubbed. Then we went for dinner, even more disappointed than before. Once again we got the call, and once again we scrambled like fireman to get suited up and to the plane. And this time we were going for it! Again we were asked to standby, so we waited for another three hours before that flight was scrubbed. And to add insult to injury much of our food supplies which would have stayed deep frozen and good for weeks on the mountain have spoiled.
Momma always said to look on the bright side, so:
We got lots of practice dressing really fast.
We looked very handsome in our mountaineering gear.
We got lot’s of exercise running back and forth to the plane.
I got some nice photos of a pretty airplane.
We get to go grocery shopping tomorrow.
Nobody fell in a crevasse.
We aren’t freezing our buns off.
I’m not at work.
I saw a moose.
