Weather shuts down Washington Island Ferry until Christmas Day

The weather is acting like the Grinch for those trying to travel to and from Washington Island this Christmas. The Washington Island Ferry Line announced Friday afternoon that weather conditions would not allow passengers to cross Death’s Door. Having the ferry shut down multiple days in a row is virtually unheard of, even more so at around the holidays. Washington Island Ferry President Hoyt Purinton says some ships may still hit the water in weather like this, but none carry the precious cargo that they do.

Purinton says the weather forecast is looking favorable to allow people to cross Death’s Door on the Washington Island Ferry on Christmas Day morning.
