Photo of the day. Iditarod Start is just around the corner.

Saturday is the Ceremonial Start of the 2016 Iditarod Sled Dog Race.  There's still absolutely no snow in Anchorage, so the Alaska Railroad is bringing in 7 rail cars of snow from Fairbanks to dump on the city streets.  The ceremonial start is purely for fun and the spectators that line 4th Avenue and all along the trail to Campbell Airstrip.  My guess is they're going to have to shorten this drastically to keep the dogs safe.  I'll be doing live camera again this year for  KTUU Channel 2.

The 2015 Iditarod Ceremonial Start.  Good dogs!
