Snow Dump!

Tonight Fourth Avenue goes through a major transformation.

It needs to shift from a plowed street traveled on by cars to a snow filled trail for dog teams to use as they head out of town.

I headed downtown about 9:30pm and the yearly Iditarod Snow Dump had begun. I discovered that over the course of the night, they will be bringing in about 145 dump trucks full of snow. The trail that will be created down Fourth Avenue will be about four inches deep and will be framed by 16 inch tall berms.

The Starting Line is up….

Now all we have to do is wait!
