The Little Barge That Could

The offloading of the ship was postponed yesterday due to too much ice along the edge of the bay. I caught a rumour that the ship may have to head to Nanisivik and offload there. But this morning when I looked out, the ship had moved in a little closer to shore and the tug had managed to cut a channel through the ice to get the barges to shore. A bit of a wind and some wave action then helped break up what was left of the ice.

It was also nice to have clear skies and better weather generally so I didn't have to fight my way across the road through a snow squall to get this picture too.
