While I am on shore leave to recover from the change of weather bug that is going around, Bob Trapani, a New England Lighthouse Preservationist, has written a excellent story about the Coast Guard Cutters breaking the ice on the Kennebec River.
During the spring thaw, heavy rains, rapid snow-melt and dangerous river ice jams can cause flooding and destroy bridges. Navigational Aids can be destroyed by the massive Ice floes. To read Bob’s complete story, please visit “U.S. Coast Guard Crushes Ice on the Kennebec to Safeguard River Communities.”
