TIMES HERALD • FEBRUARY 19, 2010
Starting Monday, Coast Guard cutters Mackinaw, Mobile Bay and Neah Bay and the Canadian ship Samuel Risley will break ice on a 9 mile ice jam near Algonac, according to a press release from Congresswomen Candice Miller.

The mission aims to help relieve flooding concerns and address low water level in Lake St. Clair. The lake has dropped by 2 feet because of the jam, the press release says.

Just returned from a drive along the river. The river is clear of ice from the Harsens Island ferry North. The ferry is running to the island. The North Channel near Deckers is ice covered.

Living on an island during a Michigan winter with only ferry access is a choice that comes with consequences...Maybe a bridge would solve the problem?

Damage to docks and personal property is a different issue, but from that link most of the complaints were related to access to and from the island...

Anyone who live's on the island understands the ICE and what happens, most of the people live there all of there lives THEY DON"T WANT A BRIDGE, read there paper look at there poll on it.

WHAT they don't understand is why the CG is doing Ice breaking where they are, in the river there is NO reported high water up stream from the ice.

this pic was taken yesterday at 3:00 on the north at the ferry

Some friends and we took a ride over to the river to see what was going on yesterday. What a beautiful day. We stopped at the Big River Grille and saw a lot of open water and were wondering what was going on. We watched the Griffin cruise by (see first pic) in wide open water and were surprised. We decided to have lunch at the BRG (which was really great by the way) then headed upriver.

The next two pics were taken in Marysville and shows the real ice jam problem. I think if we had gone further north we probably would have seen even more of what the real problem is. We thought it pretty cool that we got to Marysville just as the Griffin was passing there too.

Here's hoping that the pictures post okay.
