Arthur M. Anderson comes in on the wind

The wind slowed a number of boats yesterday. After the Spar Jade departed Duluth at 6:42 in the morning, there was no traffic under the Lift Bridge until the Arthur M. Anderson came in around 5:15 in the afternoon (above). After stopping for fuel at the Murphy Fuel Dock in Duluth, it was expected to go to the CN Dock to discharge a cargo of limestone. That should take most of the night. Around first light, it may depart for Two Harbors to load iron ore pellets for Gary. Weather may still slow traffic in the harbor today until the wind dies down later in the day.
