April morning in Duluth

It is April 14th, 2010. We are warmer than usual but not green. Grandma’s Marathon is a couple months away and the sidewalks are filled with runners. The Sundew is getting ready to move on to her next life with Jeff Foster, and the William A. Irvin will open as usual in May. The Federal Polaris joined the party mid morning. Currently (noon), she is at the inner anchorage waiting for the Iryda to complete loading grain at CHS1 in Superior.
And that’s not enough, the Wizard of Oz came to town and is setting up shop at the DECC auditorium for a show tonight.

Federal Polaris to take wheat to Spain

Federal Polaris to take wheat to Spain
The Federal Polaris should complete loading wheat in Duluth today (April 18, 2004). She will take that cargo to Spain when she departs later today, weather permitting.
