The Madeline Island Ferry is still making runs back and forth to the island. There are some chunks of ice in the channel but not yet iced up. There should be some sort of charity raffle each year guessing the last date of the ferry running for the season? Perhaps there is a raffle? If not that would be something that would be interesting. Guess the date of the last run! It might not be too long from now as it's pretty chilly at night. Perhaps a few more weeks?
