Ferry Service ends

Ferry service ended last night with little advance notice. 
Normally they like to give twenty-four hours notice, 
but this time it was about six.
The ferry came out of the river this afternoon at 4 p.m. 
about five days ahead of last year's removal date.

I watched the process with Dan Davidson, 
editor of the local paper: The Klondike Sun
It was cold so his warm vehicle was appreciated!

It's a complicated affair getting the ferry out of the water, involving pulleys, tractors, graders 
and a bunch of men in hard hats.
