Put-in-Bay Snow Arrives, Miller Ferry Suspends Extended Service

Only the second day of 2022 and two benchmarks to report from Put-in-Bay.  First, an overnight freezing rain mixed with sleet and snow to create the first winter wonderland–albeit faintly so.  Second, Miller Boat Line suspended the extended service schedule to South Bass Island with a simple declaration on their home page.

Of course, Island Air Taxi fired up the Piper Cherokee Six and flew several round-trips to Port Clinton!

High Winds Interrupt Put-in-Bay Ferry Service
