Icebreaking Begins on Lake Superior
Blog Note: For my blog readers on the Great Lakes, time to tune up the VHF Marine freqs.
The Coast Guard vessel Biscayne Bay is on its way to Duluth from St. Ignace, Mich., to help with the Coast Guard’s largest domestic icebreaking operation.
"Operation Taconite" began Monday morning. The operation’s aim is to lengthen the shipping season on Lake Superior, St. Mary’s River, the Straits of Mackinac and Lake Michigan. The Biscayne Bay will break ice in the Twin Ports area while the Coast Guard cutter Alder completes the seasonal navigation work.
