HMCS Ojibwa--Soon to be on solid ground

This may be the day  the former HMCS Ojibwa is on solid ground for the first time since she was launched in 1964. Ojibwa has been high and dry in drydocks or lifts for refits, maintenance etc. over the years, but never actually ashore, to the best of my knowledge. "Project Ojibwa" and my confidential informants report she may come out of the water today.
Once ashore, cold warrior Ojibwa will make a stately trip of a few hundred yards to her permanent home at the Port Burwell Submarine Museum.
The weather today is reported as cold and windy--not that that would be a problem for a boat that spent virtually her entire working life in the North Atlantic.

The HMCS Ojibwa didn't make it to solid ground today. We all are hoping for tomorrow.

So, did she make it out?
