Starting at DAWN each day... the COAST GUARD has been sending PATROLS along the Hudson to BREAK-THRU the is to keep the river open to shipping....
In places.. the ice has been more than a foot this Yesterday... even the Coast Guard barely made it the WORLD'S END stretch of the Hudson.....
Elsewhere.. off Long Island... SALT WATER in one nation's richest claiming areas.. the Great South Bay froze SOLID..... and the clam boats couldn't operas A few clammers drilled holes in the ice... a got triple the normal price for the clams they ???
