Break Up

We are all anxiously awaiting break up. Well, maybe not the villages who are still enjoying ice travel. One icon of spring in Bethel is the break up marker. The High School has a 50/50 raffle to guess when this marker will fall through the ice. There is a timer on it and you guess to the second. Half of this year’s pot is ~$6,000.00. I have guessed May 8th. The scientist are guessing May 9th. The average is May 12. They are predicting an earlier break due to thinner ice conditions and more snow on top. It was 10 degrees this morning. It better warm up soon!
