Kuskokwim Conditions At Aniak On Nov 20

Well, the temperature got down to -4 degrees last night and the Kuskokwim is still passing ice.  The Aniak Slough is now frozen over with no visible open spots.

Tonight the temperature is expected to be a little colder, so it’s likely that people will begin crossing the slough shortly…if they haven’t already.  It was difficult to see tracks going all the way across because of the shadows, but  tracks were visible on both banks across from each other.

If anyone does attempt to cross in the near future, please use extreme caution.
