We went for a ride this morning and saw 4 freighters stuck in the river. One of them was pushed sideways!!! I don't know how they will ever get it turned around with all the ice. We took pictures of all of them and tried to get photos of the four of them in a line but our camera is not up to that.
So I am sharing with you one photo to show you how huge these freighters are so that you can get a little understanding of how thick and strong the ice must be to stop them.
And then another of the Coast Guard coming to the rescue of one of them. I am not sure what the Coast Guard can do but I am sure seeing them made the crew feel much better. At least they know that they are not stuck there all alone!!
The temperatures actually rose today to the mid 20s. I think our high was 27* Farenheidt. It appears as though these temps are going to last throughout the week which is much warmer than what we had last week!! The snow finally started falling in this area as well. We probably have about 2 inches so far tonight and are expecting another inch or so before morning.
