It finally happened – the ice broke up and moved somewhat impressively past Aniak…at least when it first happened.
And I missed all the great action by 30 seconds!
Normally if there is ice backed up for a hundred or more miles and there is lots of snow melt entering the river – it’s even more exciting. The fist few minutes was the best, and as of now the water is only 1/3 of the way up the dike.
Here are pictures and videos will soon follow on other posts.
And then it happened!
Within 10 seconds this was the result – people were scrambling.
