Sure sign of spring on the North Shore:
The first boat pivoting into the Ore Docks. Lake Superior Shipping Season 2012 has begun.
The John G. Munson (heh) is now picking up ore pellets. We should be expecting the most powerful of the 1,000 foot ore ships later today - the Edwin H. Gott. I hope this crazy fog that we have had for the last several days clears up.
