Barge stuck in bay, ice breaking vessel on its way to help

With winter comes the ship repair season.  Six barges are scheduled for repair at Donjon's Ship Repair Facility, but if you drove along the bay today, you may have noticed one of the barges stuck in the ice.

The Pathfinder Barge lost steam, stranding the vessel in place.  An ice-breaking vessel is currently on its way to help free the barge, breaking the ice along the east end of the bay to allow easy passage for the ships to Donjon.  

The Erie Port Authority wants to remind people to avoid the east end of the bay and use caution throughout the bay until further notice.
