We Made It To Seattle
We made it by bus to the airport without it raining on us.
I want to say thanks to Theresa at Alaska Airlines for changing our ticket because she was sure we wouldn't make our connection in Seattle. (We'd changed our flight that was supposed to stop in Portland to one stopping in Seattle because of the weather. Alaska lets you change flights when there are big weather issues without having to pay the flight change or change in cost of the ticket.) We learned another big advantage of being MVP on Alaska. You get a leg up on the waiting list. I have issues about this airline class system, but if it exists, I'm glad we were on the right side and I apologize to anyone who might have not gotten on because of us.
We got our ticket and you can see the view through the window above as we waited to take off.
The landscape around Portland was pretty white as we flew by Mt. Hood.
But as we got further north, things were looking better and we landed in the sun in Seattle.
Our gate has been changed from C11 to D1 and my wife is waiting for me to finish this so I will. Be back in Anchorage soon if all goes well.
