Philip R. Clarke arrives in cold

The Philip R. Clarke arrived in Duluth just before noon on Monday (above) and was greeted by a small but hearty group of souls who almost looked like they were standing in formation. It came in light (no cargo) to load taconite for Conneaut, Ohio and probably departed the port late Monday night. We expect 6 arrivals today, half loading coal and the other half taconite. Both cargos have been first in tonnage over the last 5 years. Last year, the port saw 19 million tons of coal passing through the port and 17 million tons of taconite. Photo taken on December 31,2007
