A big “THANK YOU” to the City and Ice Breaking Crews..
As we awoke today, for the first time in several weeks we found the Vermilion River to be free of ice and for that we are grateful. Winter can be a tricky time to navigate within the river community, we are especially thankful that the City of Vermilion and South Shore Dredge and Dock have worked very diligently in keeping the ice flows under control.
Pictured below the last of the ice flowing out.
Breaking up is hard to do…
As you can see the crew from South Shore really had some work to do chomping up the ice as it passed.
All’s well that ends well…
Here at your homeport, you can see what ice in the channel is melting on it’s own under some of the mild temps this week. Now, we can look forward to the approaching spring!
