Wind sled time again

The ice road closed after only a week. So it's back to the ice sleds until the ferry can break ice and make a open path to the island.
Which may be soon at these temps! The weather is certainly warm for March. All of Lake Superior is wide open except for the channels and bays near land.
All the cars are parked in the Ferry Service parking lot so they can be used by the island residents when they come across on the Wind sled. Pictured is the newest Wind sled and the old style sled. Looks like a aircraft landing wheel on the front to aid steering.
