Being sick all weekend, I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night from being too congested. Last night, I happened to notice a freighter out in the water at 4am. I then realized that it wasn’t moving. 4 hours later, it was still in the same spot. Is it possible for freighters to get stuck in the ice?

Apparently, it is!! The coast guard showed up and made a couple of passes by, then stopped to watch the freighter slowly loosen its way out of the ice. Crazy to think that just yesterday our passage had completely open waters.
