Kom comes to Duluth for Thanksgiving

There are many reasons why Paul Scinocca (above) is a better photographer than I am. One is his ability to get down and dirty when taking a picture. I might try that sometime (not); getting back up would be the hard part. BTW, the temperature on this Thanksgiving morning, November 26, 2014 was 4 degrees and that is the Kom coming in from Lake Superior. And most important, click the picture in the insert here for a larger version of result of Paul’s effort.
We welcome the Kom to Duluth. She was built in 1997 in Varna, Bulgaria, the city where her owner started business in 1890. All her officers and crew are from Bulgaria. We seldom see ships that maintain such a national identity over a long period of time. (She does fly a Maltese flag, but it is only a ‘flag of convenience.’) She will carry her cargo of wheat she is now loading at the CHS terminal to Italy.
