Nenana Ice Classic - TriPod down!

Happened yesterday but it’s hanging on. Pretty sure it’s gonna stop the clock today.


Ice cam at link.

I have five guesses today starting at 2:26pm AK time. Beginners luck may help me win. Hope so!

On edit: time is Standard time so…per KTUU—

“As a reminder, the winning time is posted in Standard Time. Since Alaska is currently in Daylight Saving Time, one hour must be subtracted from the current time. Clocks in Alaska were advanced one hour on March 13. For example, if the anchor and rope cause the clock to stop at 5 p.m., the winning time will be posted as 4 p.m.

This year’s jackpot is listed at $222,101.“

Dangit! Now over an hour to wait till my first guess of the day is viable. And the tripod seems to be slowly moving.
