Wednesday on Alaska News Nightly:

More than a foot of snow in Anchorage strands drivers across the city. Plus, a crab fishery five years in the making gets ready to open. And is dog mushing suffering from higher costs? Probably, but that’s not all.

Reports tonight from:

Chris Klint in Anchorage
Anna Canny in Juneau
Izzy Ross in Dillingham
Theo Greenly in Unalaska
Dan Bross in Fairbanks
and Raegan Miller in Ketchikan

Alaska News Nightly is hosted by Casey Grove, with producing and audio engineering from Chris Hyde and Madilyn Rose.
