Since this was an exceptionally warm winter, I thought it would be interesting to create a mini-Nenana Ice Classic online poll. Everyone picks a date (no time required), and those who are closest to the official Nenana Ice Classic break-up time win a virtual cyber cookie.

The poll ends Friday, April 25.

It's aweful warm up there and I think I see water. I have always May 3 on my ticket 'cause it's my birthday but methinks I'm too late this year. It's looking soon.

Nenana Ice Classic
I agree. I think the poll may be too late. It certainly looks like the Nenana could break-up by or before the poll closes on Friday.

If it goes today at 2:16 pm, I'm a winner... Otherwise I continue to be a big loser.

Well here it goes:
Breakup! Tripod falls on the Tanana River - Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: Alaska News

Quote:
If you were looking at your watch, the tripod tumbled at 4:48 p.m. Alaska Daylight Time, but by tradition, the Ice Classic uses Alaska Standard Time, an hour earlier. This is the first time in the history of the race that the ice went out on April 25.
