It's been an easy going winter here and not so bad up north either. Here's the Edwin H. Gott, a Great lakes ore freighter, coming in to Duluth harbor to dock for winter layup until March, the last of the boats to come in for the season. Note the absence of ice in the harbor. Also, note the angle of the ice rim on the bow. These boys were seeing some heavy seas out on Gitchee Gumee on their last trip. By the time you see this the crew will be long gone for such places as Daytona and Apalachicola, Florida. Here's to my friend Pooty: I hope you get your fair-skinned arse sunburned down there -AGAIN!

I've spent some time up near Ashland, WI riverdrifter. Went up there a couple of winters ago to do some repairs on a friends cabin. They had just gotten a "light" snow, 14 inches. I have a photo taken by a friend who was walking with Mrs Roe of an albino deer that was less than 20 yards from them.

Major, major snowstorm coming on April 1. Mother Nature always has the last laugh.
