Eagle, Alaska Flooding

Well, flooding isn't really the word for it. Bulldozed by Yukon River ice is more like it.
Eagle has always been my favorite spot in Alaska. I've always said that if I had one minute to pick where I would live the rest of my days up here, Eagle would be that place.
I first visited the fair, First Class City (and Village) in the late '70s when I was in the Coast Guard in Tok.
Well, this year "Springtime in Alaska" ain't no 40 below. It's been HOT in the Interior and the Upper Yukon is on an ice jam rampage.
The pictures are heartbreaking.
