Routine reflections and views from the River's Edge in Northern Michigan.

We have been watching this icebreaker for two days. My husband has been waiting for this day since the shipping season closed on January 15. It will officially reopen at midnight tonight. The ice across the river was solid and thick and at times caused the Mackinaw to come to a complete stop. It had to back up and try again. They accomplished their mission with a track wide enough for a ship to transit. We should see our first ship pass down bound tomorrow afternoon or evening. The snow covered ice on the river has been beautiful, but I am ready for open water...the eagles have already found it ;)!!
