"The ice is gone!! The Tanana River ice officially broke up on April 25th, 2014 at 3:48 p.m."

Read the news and view the photos and thanks to the Nenana Ice Classic in Nenana, Alaska.

(note: The Nenana Ice Classic is an annual contest held in Alaska since 1917 to guess the exact time the Tanana River ice breaks up in the area of Nenana. A tripod is placed on the ice with a long tether to a clock on the shore. When the river ice begins its break-up the tripod will begin to move downriver and the tether pulls on the clock thereby stopping the clock.)
