    Would be a real “wonder” to witness with my own eyes. In all the times I’ve ever seen the Sonoran Desert, I’ve never seen it quite the way it is in certain years “in bloom.” Breath taking is as close to descriptive as I can come. Thank you Stella!

    Mornin’ Pa, everyone. The ocean is still hitting the beach pretty hard. That is probably normal. The sky has some streaks of clouds, but it is supposed to cloud up and rain later. Don’t know what the plan is for today. Hope the weather is good where you are.

    IDITAROD UPDATE

    He did it! Brent Sass has won the Iditarod! He crossed the finish line under the Burled Arch in Nome at 5:38 this morning, 68 minutes ahead of Dallas Seavey. It was a sweet victory for Brent. He and the team made it in 8 days 14 hours 38 minutes and 43 seconds. This year was his 7th Iditarod, with a previous best finish of 3rd place. He is also a 3-time winner of the Yukon Quest, Alaska’s other 1,000-mile sled dog race. In Brent’s first Iditarod run in 2012 he took Rookie of the Year, finishing in 13th place. In this race, it’s a big deal for any rookie to finish in the top 20.

    The race champion receives a purse of about $40,000 plus a brand new Dodge pickup truck. Brent also claimed numerous other awards during this race: First to the halfway point, First to the Yukon River, First to Kaltag, First to the Bering Sea coast. Those awards total $13,000 in cash and gold nuggets. The only one he didn’t win was First to McGrath.

      Frantastic, thanks Tundra…been watching the nightly recaps, but scant coverage otherwise (unless you have something).

        Thanks, weather! Dog mushing is the official state sport in Alaska, and Iditarod is a really big deal here. In the Lower 48, not so much. National mainstream media rarely has anything about it. The Anchorage local affiliate of NBC used to carry the Ceremonial Start in Anchorage and the Restart (the true beginning of the race) the next day from Willow, but this year they did not do so. I don’t know why. I had to watch it on the internet as part of my paid annual subscription. Throughout the race, the Anchorage Daily News (a liberal rag if there ever was one, but ok on sports coverage) prints pretty regular articles. Follow this link to their coverage:

        Thanks for your encouragement, Stella. I’m such a die-hard fan of mushing that until somebody comes out and says “jeez, lady, put a cork in it, wouldja?” I’ll just keep writing about it. I love these 10 days in March every year. And I love the dogs.

    Ugly weather coming across. Soon it will hit us and the rain is supposed to be pretty heavy. It is raining really hard back home and their were tornado warnings in the area. We will have to see what happens here. The ocean is absolutely churning.
