"Breaking" news - Norwegian Icebreaker heads up the Mississippi River

You may have seen on the news that it's been very cold. In fact, Old Al Gore may have to once again cancel his annual Global Warming Summit due to blizzards and snow.
It's been so cold in Iowa, that the US Corps of Engineers has subcontracted a Norwegian Icebreaker to clear the Mississippi River for freighter traffic. The Icebreaker started near Davenport and is working northward. Here is a remarkable picture as the hard work of ice breaking begins. Impressive!
