The mighty Huron made her last trip for the season this morning. While it's been cold and the Straits have started icing over, the harbors have also been an issue. If the winds are just right, chunks of ice can blow in and fill the harbor; making it difficult for the boat to get in and out. The boats may start running again if the ice conditions improve, otherwise I'll be getting home in my other "car." It's a good thing I stocked up on necessities early!

Often the boats make it through the beginning of January and then we have to fly on and off the island through early spring. It's a quick trip - less than five minutes from take off to touch down. The only downside is the cost of freight. That, and the plane is much more dependent on the weather...
