ANCHORAGE, ALASKA A retired peace officer and his paramedic-firefighter wife are the sole winners of Alaska's biggest guessing game.
Warren and Yvonne Snow, of Kenai, had the closest guess of when the ice would go out on the Tanana River in Nenana, which happened at 3:41 p.m. Monday. The game officially uses standard time, not daylight time, so the winning time is listed as 2:41 p.m. Monday.
No one guessed that exact time, but the Snows were only a minute off. Their guess of 2:40 p.m. will net them $318,500 before taxes as winners of the Nenana Ice Classic.

This year breaks a record for the latest the ice has broken. The previous record was 11:41AM May 30th, 1967.
Congratulations to the retired LEO and his paramedic/firefighter wife!
MEANWHILE there is something MUCH BIGGER brewing in Nenana!
This is a longish video but well worth watching. Agenda21, Delphi, ICELI, have their socialist sights set on Nenana.
THE PEOPLE THERE ARE STANDING UP TO THEM!
Later today I intend to post a separate thread about it with several links to more information.
More important, after 30+ years of “global warming” from the liberals, today’s Ice Classic breakup set a new record ... for the LATEST breakup ever.
Today’s record late breakup broke the previous date-time for latest ever, set back in 1964.
If you get a chance check out the video I linked. The people of Nenana really told the socialist, Agenda21 person to take a hike! Similar to when the Tea Party was vocal at the town hall meetings!
God Bless Them!
“The previous record was 11:41AM May 30th, 1967” (1964)
How is May 21 later than May 30? I’m confused here.
OK, from the article;
Old record...11:41 a.m. May 20, 1964
New record... 2:41 p.m. May 20, 2013
I have seen two recently constructed traffic circles (in North Dakota??), doubtless some of that ICLEI crap. Just wait until they try to plow the snow out of those!!
What genius thinks this stuff up?
