Description

Great Lakes vessels lay-up every winter due to ice in navigation channels. This photo is of the 1000 ft. ore carrier Edgar B. Speer, arriving Duluth, MN in Jan. of 2009. The air temperature was about -30 degrees. The steam is actually from warmer water under the ice meeting the colder air. The tug is performing ice breaking duty.
