    Hey mj, here\'s a story you should read.....

    I pulled this off TheWeatherNetwork.com:

    [ QUOTE ]
    Mild temperatures in southern Ontario have many conservation authorities keeping a close eye on water levels in rivers and streams. Thick ice lingering along the north shore of Lake Erie forced one region to call in an ice breaker to prevent potential flooding.


    "Well we contacted the Canadian Coast Guard a couple of weeks ago because of the heavy ice cover on the Grand River. And the idea was to bring the ice breaker into the mouth of the Grand River at Port Maitland," says Dave Schultz of the Grand River Conservation Authority.


    "We then wanted to create a channel up the river to allow the melting water and ice to have a place to go after it has melted further upstream. The Canadian Coast Guard didn't have a ship available that could go into the river, so they in turn contacted the American Coast Guard, which sent one of its ice breakers across. The ice breaker from the Coast Guard will go to the mouth of the river and then we contracted a private ice breaking tug to go up the river."
