After the planes, I decided to head back up to Durand. I was hoping to see a few trains.

When I arrived at work this morning, the power was out. After a couple of hours, it was apparent that the power wasn't coming back anytime soon, so they let us go. Since it was a nice day, I decided to take advantage of it. I was hoping that I would be able to catch a couple of ships but those had passed by the time they let us go. Then I remembered that the "Heavies" land at Detroit Metro between 12:30 and 2:00 (or so), so I decided to head over to the airport for a bit.

The Blough was being followed fairly closely by another ship.
I kept a pretty close eye on when the Roger Blough would be leaving Conneaut. I figured that I might have a good chance to catch her. When I woke up this morning, I saw that she was about halfway across Lake Erie (or so). I figured that would put her in Port Huron around 1800. That gave me the chance to do laundry and catch up on some other stuff.
