  • Description

    The record-breaking cold wave that hit the Eastern United States is receding. The news is that in the West Army Helicopters were still rescuing snow-bound families in Indiana and amightyice-jam has idled shipping on the Mississippi.
    Homes in the Great Lakes area flet the need for more fuel oil as a result of the great freeze. The oil tanker Travis City Socony left East Chicago, Indiana with a cargo of six hundred thousand gallons of fuel oil for Milwaukee.
    Lake Michigan was so cold, even the radar had to be wrapped in a burlap. The coast-guard ice-breaker Mackinac had to break a path through the ice for the tanker.
    The trip, across Lake Michigan, normally considered a milk run, took twice as long as normal. The tanker, encrusted with ice, finally made it.
