Nenana Ice Classic 2009

This is a video of the ice breaking up on the Tanana River here in Nenana.  I was there!  The person leaning out over the water is me and I am talking the most in the background (I was on the phone to my mom).  It was so exciting!

Time was 8:41 p.m. May 1st, there were two winners, one from Galena, one from Juneau.  The jackpot was $283,000+.

you guys do really weird things for fun in Alaska! I can't believe that many people come out to watch the river melt. It is so funny to see, but must be exciting to think that summer is almost here and warm weather and look at the SUN!
