With this long cold winter and with more that 90% of the great lakes covered in ice shipping would grind to a halt if it wasn't for the Ice Breaker.  The Coast Guard stays busy throughout the winter keeping channels open and up here in the Straits the area remains open for business due to the efforts of the USCGC Mackinaw WLBB-30.  With the USCGC Mackinaw keeping plenty busy this year we through we would share a little video we found of showing how shipping keeps moving during the winter months thanks to the Ice Breakers

It’s been a long a cold winter here on the great lakes and many are looking forward to the warmth of spring but don’t count on the lakes warming up as fast as the nights!  Ice coverage across the Lakes are nearing record levels with 92% of the Great Lakes surface area covered as of March 6th This is the most coverage we’ve had since the 70s.
