Joe Medlin (left) helps Rory Strange launch his ice boat into the waters of Superior Bay on Thursday morning. Strange had a good day of sailing on Wednesday, but the winds accompanying Thursday’s winter storm broke up and shifted the bay’s ice covering. Around 9 a.m. Thursday a neighbor called Strange to tell him “Your boat is leaving.” With the help of friends and neighbors, and using plastic barrels for flotation and a long rope, Strange rescued his and another person’s ice boats.
