The steel industry on this side of the Great Lakes is all but shut down. There was an announcement on boatnerd yesterday that the mill in Lorain, Ohio, which is the destination of both salties and lakers that I frequently photograph, will not be reopening any time soon and the large mill on Zug Island in Detroit is also closed down. I suspect many U.S. Lakers will remain in layup for some time and some may not come out at all, especially the Ryerson. Also last fall there was virtually no grain rush out of Toledo either which was a great disappointment.

Thanks Dave.

I don't know what to expect this year with the recession. One thing is for sure is that we will certainly see fewer ships loaded with steel destined for Detroit. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Cheers,

Marc

Beautiful photos your are posting today -- if that ice doesn't start melting things could get interesting in a few weeks when the Seaway and Welland Canal open.
