Canal Cam Fundraiser

Canal Cam Upgrade Fund Raiser Successful

We raised the $1500 for the Canal Cam Upgrade plus enough to pay the $700 streaming service for the two Silver Bay cams once they come online next month.

The new Canal Cam will be the Flagship of the Fleet!

This is unbelievable - thank you all so much, it took less than 8 hours to raise the funds.

St. Clair Fire

The U.S. Coast Guard responded to a fire aboard the freighter St. Clair on Saturday in Oregon, Ohio, just outside Toledo.  No one was aboard, and the ship carried no cargo. See story in Duluth News Tribune.

The 762-foot St. Clair, St Clair last visited the Twin Ports in November when it arrived through the Superior Entry.

Snowflake photos

Light snow and 15F temps make for some nicely formed ice crystals falling from the sky.
I took these images with my Iphone this morning on the hood of my car.

Sven and Ole Ice Fishing at Two Harbors - 2018

A rerun of the adventures of Sven and Ole ice fishing at Two Harbors last spring. (2018) - This was one of the most popular videos from last year.

These two fishermen (perhaps Sven and Ole) are the most determines guys that I have seen on the cams.  Saturday morning, after chopping a place for their boat, the two were finally able to launch and break their way free onto Lake Superior.

They returned six hours later.

A good example of ice fishing and breaking when needed.

Ice Locked

With Spring right around the corner, things seem to be waking up, even though the boats are still quit ice-locked.
