    Extremely challenging ice conditions in the Northwest Passage are disrupting high-yielding expedition voyages for two expedition cruise operators.

    Ponant announced that due to the ice conditions, as well as a poor weather outlook, it is currently unable to sail through the Northwest Passage. Two ships, Le Boreal and Le Soleal, are altering their routes and will continue their expedition voyages to Kangerlussuaq (Greenland), which they will reach on September 10 and 18, respectively.

    Hurtigruten is in a similar situation with the Fram.

    “This year’s ice conditions in the area are proving to be quite different from previous years; the current conditions in the Victoria and James Ross Straits are such that unfortunately, no ordinary ship can sail through the area,” the company said, in a prepared statement.

    Ahh, I wasn't aware that Old Rocks visited there recently, to check it out. He must have found a good deal on a dogsled and some Huskys on Craigslist.

    There it is, as long as things are changing they've got it covered. Because as we know, until recently our global climate has been totally unchanging and stable.

    For the second time in two years, it looks as if an Atlantic hurricane will stall just inland, and cause major damage from as much as 30" to 40" inches of rain. And that is related directly to the decline of ice in the Arctic.

    I'm still waitin' for that big hole to open up in the ozone layer and toast everyone. I stocked up on a 55 gallon drum of SPF 10,000 sunscreen back in the 80's.

    I hope it hasn't turned rancid.
