Wintry looking waterfront after the storm
Visitors are still checking out the waterfront on Wednesday, after the wicked spring storm.
The waves pushed ice into the shipping channel, and it looks like a landscape of frozen tundra.
According to the Duluth Seaway Port Authority, the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Spar will be breaking up the ice on Thursday morning.
A group we met in Canal Park drove through the storm on Tuesday.
David Davis, a teacher on spring break, told us, “It was kind of rainy down by the cities. And then as we got closer to Duluth, there was more and more snow and less and less visibility. So just went slower. You know, we’re Midwesterners, we’re used to driving in weather, but it was it was interesting.”
His wife, Katelin, added, “We had heard on NPR, I think last week or two weeks ago that the water was open, that the harbor was open and ships were leaving. And we were just like wondering how do they get through it. So, yeah, it’s definitely a really stunning winter spring landscape to look at.”
It’s their first time in Duluth.
Their friend, Joe Heitz, has been here before, but in September. “It’s still really pretty, though. You know, it’s definitely different. But, you know, it’s still cool to see,” he told us.
They had already tried out Carmody’s, and had plans at New Scenic Cafe for lunch. Hope you come back soon!
