Anyway...Mom arrives this evening. Sis and bro-in-law drive in tomorrow morning. While we're flying up to Vancouver, Al & Dex will already be up there with Q arriving just before us. And then the fun will begin!
I'm feeling a little better about the weather forecast as well. Perhaps the low pressure system will get there a little earlier. Instead of Ketchican being a wash out, it might only be a little rainy. *crosses claws* Things look very good for Skagway and Glacier Bay a few days later. It will probably be a lot like experiences I have had when visiting the Pacific NW. It took several trips to finally see Mt Rainier or Mt St Helens. The weather wasn't awful, but huge sweeping vistas were hampered by low clouds and gloom. Such is the nature of the beast.
