>>> more incredible pictures tonight out of that town in alaska that winter clearly hasn't forgotten. why thank god the national guard has shown up, the problem now is they're running out of shovels to get rid of it. that coast guard ice breaker trying to cut a path for the russian tanker in the bering sea , very slow going. when the ice breaker gets through, the ice closes up like a zipper keeping the tanker in place.
