Fur Rondy begins

It's Fur Rendezvous time again in Anchorage! Although you could barely tell it by looking around. We have had two-tenths of an inch of snow since we last blogged. This brings us to 20.5 inches for the season. Pitiful! As of right now, we are still at the second lowest snowfall totals for a season. We have about 2 months of winter left, so you never know. There has been so little snow that the sled dog races have been cancelled here. The ceremonial start for the Iditarod will still take place on Saturday. I hope they have enough snow stockpiled to make the course!
Last Saturday I took a few pictures of the Frostbite Footrace.
The costumes were as flamboyant as ever!
 This afternoon, Greg and I went down and took pictures of the snow sculptures.

With the temps being in the mid 30s lately,
 we were too late on a few of the sculptures.

Parts of some sculptures had melted and collapsed.
Here's my favorite. The Stay Puft marshmallow man!

 Here are some images from the movie Frozen. 

I'm headed out of here for Spring Break so we'll have to catch up later!
