Iditarod 2020 – Day 2

Iditarod 2020 MapSled DogThe start is at 5PM CDT (2PM AKDT) with plenty of fresh snow yesterday. The high temperature is forecast to be 29° F. The moon will be full tomorrow. The teams leave a couple of minutes apart with the times equalized at the 24-hour stop. The temperature is a little high and the new snow may lead to moose using the trail, but at least it will look like the old Alaska of the 1960s in March.

Just found out it will be a supermoom because it is at its closest approach to the earth.

Standings at 10:20PM CDT (7:20PM AKDT):
