From 30 Below to 30 Above
Overnight the temperature changed from deep freeze to mild winter. Greg and Ruby are standing in front of the K-300 dog sledding races which brings out the several champs of the Iditerod. It was pretty exciting as usual. All you could hear was "bark, bark, bark," "bark bark bark." People go wild here about the K-300! Before the dogs start barking all you hear is snow machines running around in anticipation. People leave work early to get prepared. There is even traffic jams. They had a really nice fire work display afterwords which made Ruby and Moxy cry. I feel really nervous about the dog mushers though because the wind is really pounding tonight...gusts of 50 miles per hour.
