Things to Do
Since I'm away from the river right now, I'm using the web to follow what's new on the St. Marys River and in the shipping industry.
The problems at the Poe Lock are making big news. Having the Poe Lock shut down emphasizes how dependent the shipping industry is on the this one lock that can handle 1,000 ships.
You can read about it at Another Poe Lock Problem Could Maroon 70% of the Great Lakes Fleet.
I also found a lighthouse festival in Alpena on greatlakesshipwatchers.com. You can read about it on Great Lakes Lighthouse Festival in Alpena.
While I am gone, I would appreciate hearing from my readers about what is happening on the river. Thanks
