The Sault Ste Marie locks in MIchigan opened early this year on Sunday, March 21.  The early opening was due to less severe ice conditions as usual and a very strong demand for iron ore from the region's steel mills.  The locks connect Lake Superior with Lake Huron.  Ice is causing problems in a few locations most notably where Lake Huron becomes a river off Sarnia, Ontario/Port Huron, Michigan and in the Huron Cut.  Those of us who follow the 'lakers' are happy to see the boats back out on the lakes after winter layup.
