    Shippers are crying for more ice breakers because the season is so short. Don’t listen to fake scientists, listen to the people who make a living off the lakes.

    I cross the Straits of Mackinac every weekday and it is 70% ice covered. With warm temps today and chance of rain that per cent should decrease.
