Breaking the Ice

Ice Breaker
WOW! What a difference a couple weeks makes. The daytime highs are hovering around 0C, the snow is slowly melting, and it is light during the commute home. Spirits are much improved.

This picture was taken two years ago (along with all the other pictures I’ve posted) this time that year when a Coast Guard hovercraft was making his way up the seaway doing doughnuts. He’d ride up over the unbroken ice and the weight of the hovercraft would start breaking up the ice. It was kinda fun to watch. A day or two later, they opened the locks and the water swept away the ice downstream.
