So what happens to these ships all winter long? Are there crew aboard and do they keep the systems up and running on the ship? Pete

They have ship keepers aboard to keep an eye on them. Maintenance is also done during winter. I remember a photo in the newspaper of painters using scaffolding on the ice.

If you want to get a real time look at them (Burns Harbor is behind some silos though) :http://www.lakefrontcam.com/cameras/south-shore-cam/

got rain and snow last night, everything was fine because it was just above freezing, skies cleared and at 6:30am the temped dropped below freezing, instant ice patches and frozen bridges, the morning commute looks like a demo derby.. I'm having some more coffee and will think about going to work around 10am it will all be melted by then..
