Long Boats and Long Shadows

Slow going today as captains and tugs try to maneuver the 1000 foot American Century and Indiana Harbor through thick ice in the Duluth Harbor. Imagine trying to turn a boat the length of three football fields through an ice pack!
With a warming trend in the works, the harbor ice will be loosening its grip on the boats this week.

  1. From looking at the list of ships coming into the Twin Ports, Two Harbors and the other ore shipping points the opening of the soo locks did not come any too early. It looks like there will be enough traffic to keep the ice broke up.
