As the Presque Isle sat damaged at the Port Terminal dock in the Duluth Superior Harbor Saturday afternoon, the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Morro Bay sat across the bay near the Aerial Lift Bridge nursing its own wounds.
Both vessels were forced to return to the Twin Ports Friday after Lake Superior's ice cover—as thick as 8 feet in some places—put a halt on any forward progress.
The US Coast Guard icebreaker Katmai Bay went past the cabin last night on its way to the Soo locks, but today it appears to have holed up in Thunder Bay as a storm is also moving through. Between the ice and the storm rolling through late this afternoon and tomorrow, conditions are just too much. I was hoping to get some good big boat pics with the new camera this trip, but I don't think that's to be.
Below the fold, a couple of gifs I made today of the ice getting blown past the house from east to west.
