Lord willing, I am leaving Friday morning to fly to Alaska for 9 days:) Right now, I am a little afraid because of the Volcano "Redoubt" that is expected to erupt at any time. The volcano is about 100 miles from Anchorage, however, the Ash could still be very harmful to those in Anchorage. Please say a little prayer about this. I pray that hopefully it "goes back to sleep", but if it does erupt I pray the wind is blowing in the opposite direction and no one will be affected by it. If it does erupt and the ash goes towards Anchorage, I pray everyone will be safe and unharmed.
