5:45 AM came mighty early. On the upside, I slept in my clothes (no suitcase, remember?) so all I had to do was wash my face, brush my teeth and hair, put on my shoes, and gather up all my electronics. It was a little amusing to think that I had no clothing and no toiletries, but I did have these items: 1) computer
2) computer power cord 3) Kindle 4) Kindle charger 5) camera 6) camera cord 7) camera battery charger 8) ipod 9) ipod charger 10) phone 11) phone charger. Priorities, huh?

My flights were fine; I arrived in Anchorage at 10:30 AM and left for Unalaska at 1. It was beautiful in Anchorage and when I talked with Rich, he said it was "flyable" at home. We stopped in Cold Bay to get fuel and passengers and the weather had become overcast and windy by then. We had no difficulties getting in, though, and it wasn't even bumpy. Rich said he was surprised to hear the plane engines overhead since the weather had worsened and he was already feeling sorry for me that I wasn't getting to come home. We were happy to see each other after 9 weeks apart! It was cold and snowing when I arrived--a big difference from Dallas the last few days.

Back to work tomorrow and I need to scramble to get a lot done for our annual membership meeting on Saturday!
