More weather watch

Another storm passed through Halifax over night leaving high seas outside the port, even though it was dead flat calm in the Bedford Basin. Both the gypsum carrier Alice Oldendorff and the St-Pierre et Miquelon feeder Fusion were due to leave last night, but anchored in the Basin instead.
By this morning  the storm was well past, but the ships remain at anchor until conditions improve to safely disembark pilots at the pilot station.
1. Alice Oldendorff took only a partial load of gypsum.

2. Fusion sits at anchor with only some cormorants on a navy trot buoy for company.
