As I woke up this morning, I saw a group of four ships gathered near Algonac. They were all stopped and then I saw the Canadian ice breaker Griffon heading up there. I thought that she was going up there to free them. Well, it turns out that she was running into issues as well. As I am typing this post, I see that the US Coast Guard Cutter Bristol Bay is heading up there. I assume she is going to help with the ice breaking.
I guess it is amazing how quickly ice will start to accumulate after a few days of freezing weather. It's even more amazing how that ice hampers ship operations on the Lakes. At any rate, that meant that I wasn't going to be catching any ships today and if I remember correctly from last year, they wont break ice at night which means I have a chance to see them tomorrow.
Well I didn't want to pass on an opportunity to take pictures, so I decided to wander over to Depot Town to catch the Wolverine.
Hopefully, I will be able to catch some ships tomorrow because I think those will be the last until late March or early April.
