FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Nenana Ice Classic officials say the Tanana River ice at Nenana is the thinnest it’s been in more than a month.
Officials say the ice was slightly more than 47 inches thick when it was measured Thursday.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://is.gd/T9qwBj ) says that’s the thinnest measurement since Feb. 6 when the ice was measured at 42 inches.
The ice is almost 4 inches thinner than it was on Monday.
Ice Classic manager Cherrie Forness says that doesn’t necessarily mean the ice is shrinking.
Forness says measurements are taken in different spots each time.
People can buy tickets through April 5 to guess the day and time the ice will go out in Nenana.
