Ice is forming nicely in the harbor. Ice is soon to be disturbed by the mv Aston who is due in at 4 pm.
It is a catch 22 situation, better to let nature take its course with ice freezing (there are many reasons why), or better to have two trailer loads of firewood delivered to the community for elders.
There are those who will side with acquiescence, and those who would say all this could have been avoided with planing and priorities earlier in the shipping season.
Later in the day: Well the arrival of the mv Astron could be best described as *In and out like a honey moon dick*.
She was in and gone by 1:15pm. And any acquiescencers got a kick in the teeth, only a quarter of the expected 75 cords of wood arrived. No room was the reason.
Figure out that cost per cord of wood, trucked to Cartwright, ship diverted to bring wood all way up the Labrador coast in December to drop off 20 cord of wood.
