We are into the 2012 Iditarod Week..
3 basketball games watched,
2 days of the town swelling in size..
first with basketball players, then race fans.
1 night of northern lights for the visitors to see,
and today we will have a winner for the 40th Iditarod!
The lead teams are in White Mountain finishing up their mandatory 8-hour layover.
They will be able to head out onto the windy trail in a few hours.
At the front of the pack are several teams within a few hours of each other.
A lot can happen between there and the 77 miles to the shores of Nome!
Dogs in the lead have been known to sit down and refuse to budge
leaving their musher shaking their heads and
as other teams pass to on their way to the burled arches.
By this time tomorrow we will know this year's story.....
