We are stuck at the Anchorage Airport. Our afternoon flight to Bethel was cancelled due to mechanical issues. We have been here in this airport since 2am...it is now 2pm. Our new flight is scheduled to leave at 6pm. Ugh!
I need a shower so bad, I could scream. There is a good chance that our flight tonight could be cancelled as well because there is a big storm coming in to Bethel as I type this. They are supposed to get freezing rain. If we get stuck in Anchorage, then we will both miss the first day back to school tomorrow. I dont know how that works for me. I've never missed school because of a cancelled flight. I think I would have to take a personal day. Hopefully I wont find out how it works. I want to be home sooooooo bad.
A friend of mine from one of the villages is staying at my place tonight because he is stuck in Bethel because all of the village flights are cancelled as well. So, he is there, warming the place back up and getting my truck plugged in.
Looking on the bright side, at least the Anchorage airport has a great view. And as I was walking around a part of the airport that I've never been in before, I made a great discovery....a martini bar! Who knew?
On a funnier note, I woke up in the middle of the night last night at about 5am and in my deliriousness, walked right into the men's bathroom instead of the women's. Thankfully, no one was in there.
