Fog Shrouds the St. Marys River

Roger Blough heading down near 9 Mile
The past two days have been foggy on the St. Marys River.  The fog did not reach past the river banks but certainly presented a challenge for both captains and boat watchers.

Detroit District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers posted this on Facebook this morning. 

Got fog? The St. Marys River has been closed to navigation since about 1 a.m. due to heavy fog which is showing no signs of lifting any time soon. Once it does, it will be a fairly busy day at the locks with the Kaye E. Barker, American Courage, Herbert C. Jackson, Emilie, waiting at anchor in the river and the Philip R. Clarke, American Spirit, Burns Harbor and American Century headed towards the river. In the photo, the Lee A. Tregurtha waits to continue to Detroit, just ahead of her hidden in the fog is the Joseph L. Block.
