That's right!... Of course the volcano blew! What else could we expect trying to get back from a race?
Because of the volcano eruption near Anchorage and the threat it poses to aircraft, all flights out of Nome were cancelled today. That means Aliy, Allen and the dogs won't get out of here tonight, and we don't really have much hope for tomorrow. They are trying to arrange a flight directly from Nome to Fairbanks, but it's not at all clear if they'll be successful. Shipping the dogs is a bigger problem, especially since the dog truck is down in Anchorage.
Like I said, of course we've got a problem... We always have problems getting home from races! I'll let you know when we have a solution... Because something else we always come up with is solutions!
