FAIRBANKS — The 100th iteration of Alaska's largest guessing game ended today at 3:39 p.m., Alaska Standard Time.

Moving ice on the Tanana River toppled the Nenana Ice Classic tripod under sunny skies and nearly 60-degree temperatures.

The prize purse this year is $300,000, but it will likely take weeks before all of the hundreds of thousands of guesses are reviewed to determine the winner or winners.

"The anticipation is over, now it's just waiting for the guesses to be entered so we can notify the winners," Ice Classic Director Cherrie Forness said.

Last year I was off by 20 some minutes, this year I didn't even get close haha (my first guess was on the 26th, and I was worried THAT would be too early lol). The weather was definitely beautiful today..the forecast shows it's gonna be in the 60s all next week!!

Name something that is blue )
