Well, flight day has finally arrived, one of the few days of the year when I find myself gazing constantly upward at the sky. The forecast call for rain and flurries but its looking not too bad at the moment - partly cloudy and +5C. Here's to hoping it stays that way. Mother Nature can be pretty fickle at times. I recall last year getting out to Nanisivik and finding it socked in with thick cloud only to arrive back in Arctic Bay to clear blue skies. Such is the unpredictable nature of northern travel. I'm itching to call the airport at the moment to check on the flight status but part of me is too chicken. Hopefully if all goes to plan I will be in Ottawa tonight.
