The Great Lakes Icebreakers Are Working Round The Clock

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The cold weather that has been gripping the Upper Midwest for the past month has seen the Great Lakes suffer its biggest freeze in 20 years.

  The Great Lakes are almost completely frozen with ice cover extended across 88 per cent, according to the federal government’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory in Ann Arbor.”

 

 

Hard work: A convoy of Great Lakes cargo ships line up to follow an icebreaker on the St. Marys River, which links Lakes Superior and Huron, as 88 per cent of the Great Lakes' surface is now reported frozen

“Hard work: A convoy of Great Lakes cargo ships line up to follow an icebreaker on the St. Marys River, which links Lakes Superior and Huron, as 88 per cent of the Great Lakes’ surface is now reported frozen”

” Although parts of the lakes, which hold nearly 20 per cent of the earth’s surface fresh water, freeze almost every winter, this one has been tough on Coast Guard cutter Mackinaw and the icebreaker’s 58-member crew.

  The Coast Guard’s fleet of nine icebreakers has been unusually busy clearing paths for vessels hauling essential cargo such as heating oil, salt and coal as the deep freeze keeps hold of the Great Lakes.”

   As the above aerial survey video of the Great Lakes confirms the ice coverage is amazingly wide-spread while the satellite photo below from January 30 , 2014 is awe-inspiring .
