In this image provided by the U.S. Coast Guard, the Coast Guard Ice Breaker Healy breaks ice in the Nome Harbor on Jan. 13, 2012. The Healy has been escorting and breaking ice for the Russian tanker Renda since Jan. 3, 2012, on its way to Nome to deliver 1.3 million gallons of fuel. Now comes the tricky part: getting more than a million gallons of diesel and gasoline to shore through a mile-long hose without a spill. Nome and the villages of Noatak and Kobuk face fuel shortages that illustrate the vulnerability of relying solely on deliveries by sea or air, particularly during an especially bitter winter.
