STRANDED ON THE FERRY....:0(


This is a picture I took the other day when we got home from our Spring Vacation. The ice is coming in to melt and making it hard for the ferry to get through!

The rain started yesterday evening and later last night is turned to freezing rain. It didn't get as bad as we were expecting and it seems with all the rain the ice in ocean is breaking up a little bit more. We live just minutes from the ferry to Newfoundland and earlier this week the ferry wasn't able to get through the ice which left passengers stranded for 60 some hours before the ice breaker was able to break a path through for the ferry. One man was taken off the boat do to a panic attack that they thought was a heart attack at the time but everyone just seemed to be happy to be back on land and continuing on their way. I couldn't image how would have felt being stranded like that no far from land. We could see the ferry from here! I sat with the kids yesterday in the van and watch the attemp of another ferry trying to leave. It successfully got through the ice but I missed it because I had to take Trinity to dance class. I am sure we will get to see the ferry break through the ice again real soon and maybe I will get some good pictures!
