Coming home for the winter

The John J. Boland was greeted by a cold but hearty group when she came in for winter layup on Saturday afternoon, January 12, 2013 (temperature was 17 degrees F with the wind at 16 mph). Just below, the American Century came in at 7:56, Friday night, January 11, 2013. By Saturday morning she was tied up at the Port Terminal (just below). Below that, the Mesabi Miner is seen at her winter resting spot at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior on Saturday. She arrived on January 8th.
