Weather Delays Megaload Headed Towards Idaho

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) —A megaload of oil refinery equipment bound for the tar sands oil region of western Canada has been halted again in northeast Oregon. This time the problem is harsh weather, not protesters. The giant rig parked south of Pendleton on Tuesday after pulling out of the Port of Umatilla on Monday night.

Holly Zander is a spokeswoman for moving company Omega Morgan. She said no travel was planned Tuesday night due to wintry weather that blanketed Eastern Oregon roads in snow and ice.

The load is 22 feet wide and 380 feet long, so the state of Oregon has limited its travel to night hours. The trip has drawn protests from environmentalists and Umatilla tribal members. Protesters kept the rig from moving Sunday night.
