German Icebreaker heads up the 

Mississippi River
As you may have seen on the news it's been very cold in Minnesota .  So cold, in fact, that the US Corp of Engineers has borrowed a German Icebreaker to clear the Mississippi River for freighter traffic.  The Icebreaker is starting near Winona and working its way northward.

Here is a picture as the hard work of ice breaking begins. Impressive!   see below:
