Anna Marie moving some ice

Bad weather at the other end of Lake Superior pushed Wednesday’s full schedule to today. Warm weather here has stalled the ice buildup in the harbor, but this late in the season, most boats still need help. Above, the Philip R. Clarke is moving slowly through the harbor on its way to the CN Dock in West Duluth. In front, the tug Anna Marie Altman is leading the way. The Coast Guard cutter Alder was out clearing the ice in the main channels. The picture above, taken from the Alder, shows the Anna Marie clearing ice in front of the Clarke (in the background).
