Quite possibly signs of Spring, or these birds didn't get the memo that Spring was canceled in Alaska. You'll notice the difference in the sky, Friday's sky was overcast and brought us one last snow storm and Monday's sky was bright blue. We're all hoping we've seen the last of the falling snow for a few months.
Chubby Robbin, braving the cold temps of Friday's overcast afternoon, almost looks as perplexed by the lack of warmer weather as we are.
The contrast of weather, just three days later. This little guy seems to almost be basking in the nicer weather, surrounded by sun and crisp, blue skies.
Another sign of Spring - The Nenana Tripod fell today. The Nenana Ice Classic has been going 97 years strong, something I'd never heard of until we moved here. The tripod is placed in the middle of Tanana River once the river is frozen solid and it's left there until break-up. Every year thousands of Alaskans pay $2.50 per guess, giving them a chance at the jackpot if the tripod fall when they say it will. This years lucky winner walked away with $318,500.
