We had pretty nasty weather yesterday and today looked like it might be a continuation of that, so I figured that I needed a break from driving all day. I couldn't pass up on an opportunity to take some pictures though.

So I was going to catch the Sykes today. As I was watching her on Marine Traffic, I saw that she had stopped and turned around to dock in Marysville. I heard that she was having the same issue that she was having early Friday morning. Then I decided to head out to catch some other ships, as I was heading up on I-275, I saw someone that had spun out. About five minutes later that person was passing me, so I decided I didn't want to deal with traffic. I went back home for a little bit and then saw that I could catch a ship at Belle Isle. I thought that was close enough to where I could go catch her. As I got to 275 on I-94, I saw that there was a major accident on the eastbound side and there were a couple of cars on the side of the freeway on the westbound side. I figured that any ships I would catch were not worth it, so I just stopped at the airport to catch a couple of planes.
And one more because I like the plane so much.
It seemed like the snow was letting up and I was still thinking about heading down to Belle Isle. As I got back towards I-94, that wasn't the case, so I just headed home. Oh well. Maybe there will be something stirring tomorrow.
So yesterday I thought that I would be catching the Sykes as she headed up the Rouge River but she had an incident near the Blue Water Bridge. Then it seemed like the timing for everything else was just off. As I was getting ready to pass on the day, I saw that the Oberstar was coming up the Rouge River. I decided that I would head over there to get pictures of her.

And this is the ship that I really wanted to catch.
