It was fine this morning early it came up cloudy and has been cold all day, then it began to snow at 3.30 P.M and is snowing hard now. The ship broke out of her cradle of ice about 4 this morning, and a little of the ice broke off outside of us. Only about the length of the ship now between us and open water. The Bar. is 29.78 now. Went down to 29.48 last night.
