    That's what the weatherman is saying, but we are hoping he is lying. He did alot of that this past winter. Temperatures have dropped 5 degrees since this morning here in Delta. We are at 13 degrees right now. Got about 4 inches of snow last night, and it is still snowing a little off and on all day.

    At what point will you know if the contest is a go? I would hate to drive all the way down from North Pole and it is canceled. Thanks

    Hi guys, just called Dwight and he said to give him a call around 7:00 and they will know if they are cancelling the contest or not. Right now in Delta we have -7. So that's all the news I have on this for now. If it is a go, I'll see you at the lake tomorrow. I spent the day in Fairbanks and it was nice weather there compared the ripping winds we had in Delta all day. Came home to a lot of drifts in the driveway and my sidewalk must have had almost a foot of snow blown onto it.

    This has been canceled. We have -25 this morning. Maybe next year guys. Sorry. Wish I could have the magic of the weatherman and change the forecast to my liking. Have an enjoyable weekend.
