For John, BLUF: It was a long winter. Nothing to see here; just move along.
At a blog site named The Nenana Ice Classic we learn that this years winners, Mr and Mrs Snow, won a Jackpot of $318,500.00. They are definitely "flat earth" kinds of people, considering their pick won with Breakup being on May 20th, at 2:41 pm, Alaska Standard Time.
Interestingly enough, as we worried here if Winter would ever turn to Summer, that was the latest DTG on record for the ice to go out. I blame climate change.
Sorry for the late reporting reporting.
On the other hand, Alaska is experiencing record high temperatures. I blame the same source.
Hat tip to the Instapundit.
