Wait and then wait some more...

I finally got an email from the Mister. I haven't talked with him since Monday night. Neither one of us now have cell service. Anyway, he was "supposed" to fly out of King Salmon at 12:30 today. He's still not here. It has been a day of wait and see. The Boy and I have been out to the airport twice and sat in the truck for an hour each time. Of course, the scenery is outstanding so it wasn't like we have been suffering. The lesson behind all of this, I think, is that when we travel we should allow a full day to get anywhere. The weather may be fine here but across the lake and down south or across the Cook Inlet and up to Anchorage may be horrible. It's hard to comprehend how a few miles can make such a difference.

Our COD stuff came today from Wal-Mart and our new bedding from Bed, Bath and Beyond. We are some happy campers today! I had almost decided not to go to the post office and then changed my mind at the last minute. We got there with 10 minutes to spare --- on Fridays it closes at 1:00.

It still seems strange to have no store at all. We will have to order out of Anchorage for everything. It does seem like it gets here faster than we ever got stuff in Kasigluk.
The pilot radioed in that Lake Clark Air was landing so there has actually been a 24 hour break here. I drove out to the airport to pick up the Mister. Today (Saturday) I am back in the school as the village youth are using the gym for volleyball and fun. We had a good group of about 10 youth and 5 or 6 adults. Everybody seemed to have a good time.
