Atlantic Huron arrives Duluth passing the Rear Range Light

The Alder left for Thunder Bay around 11:30 Monday morning. Shortly after that, the Rt. Hon. Paul J. Martin left for Nanticoke, leaving the CN dock free for the Atlantic Huron. It had been waiting at anchor before coming in around 12:30 Monday afternoon (above). The CSL Niagara was set to arrive today for iron ore pellets, but that might be canceled. If so, the two remaining arrivals are the Edwin H. Gott and the Edgar B. Speer. They are both moving very slowly in the vicinity of the Lansing Shoal Light in northern Lake Michigan, just below the Soo. As of Monday evening, the cutter Katmai Bay was on the way to help out. The Gott and Speer were due here Wednesday afternoon and could still make it. Photo taken on January 12, 2009
