Algosar to Lock First

Boatnerd.com is stating that the Algosar will be the first vessel through the Soo Locks for the 2009 season. According to the website, there are no ships waiting in the river at this time although that could change before the 12:01 AM opening on Wednesday morning.

The Coast Guard remains busy in the river opening up passage ways. All shipping traffic will use the upbound channel as the channel through the Rock Cut remains closed.

Are any of you heading to the Soo for the opening? Any information would be appreciated.

I wish Dan and I could be there to see that! It's too darn far, too cold and windy to go any place!

Thanks for the update!

Cathy, I feel your pain. it is really windy and cold here this morning too. 20 mph out of the east. That can't be good. How are you doing on the snow scene? Any left?
