The news media has been all excited about our current cold snap. Duluth as one of the coldest, most northern cities, has received lots of attention. The last few mornings the temperature at 7 am has been around -25F (not including windchill). Guess what, life goes on! I was even out cross-country skiing yesterday afternoon when the temperature rose to -7F.
During this cold snap, I am often out just before dawn, and then early morning with my camera. This photograph which I took three mornings epitomizes the cold ... it is the Canadian Laker, Baie Comeau, arriving in the sea smoke at the entrance to the Duluth harbor.
