Weekly Gem #44, You could set your watch by it?
Two bells, seen by thousands in Minneapolis every day, but how many know this story? The smaller bell was from the cruiser USS Minneapolis in World War II. It spent the war in the Pacific, battling the Japanese navy. The fact that it's here is good evidence that the USS Minneapolis remained afloat for the entire war, but by such a narrow margin!
In fact, many of her sailors, and her original bow, were lost in one of the first battles of the war. The Minneapolis was hit by a torpedo that blew off her entire bow section. All the water-tight hatches were closed, so the ship stayed afloat. A temporary bow was built using Palm trees so the ship could be sailed to a repair yard, where she got a new bow, replacement crew, and got back into the fray.
I get so antsy when I go ice fishing, its hard for me to sit still. In the summer it's constant cast, paddle, cast paddle. But while your sitting on your butt in a pop up it's a twitch twitch here, eat a cookie there, take off your jacket because you're starting to sweat. Near the end of the day I was out on the ice with my pup at the "magic hour" just before sunset. It was cold and lovely.
It’s going to be a good sea smoke watching weekend!
