Ingram VP speaks

Ingram Barge Co. is one of the largest movers of cargo on the Ohio River, if not the largest. In a recent opinion piece in The Tennessean of Nashville, Dan Mecklenberg, senior vice president of Ingram Barge, discussed the importance of the inland waterways system for moving bulk cargo. Although it is written from a Tennessee perspective, it has some points that apply to all cargo-carrying rivers. You can read the piece here.

Three more winter pics

A few more pics to document the snow we had here in Huntington WV over the weekend. It wasn't much as snowstorms go. It was enough to be pretty and to cause a few inconveniences. Lucky for us, the heavier amounts that caused power outages hit to the south and the east of us.

First, a Canada goose looks around the Guyandotte boat ramp.

The mv. Ned Merrick heads downriver.

And the East End bridge, which is white and gray in most light, fades into the background of snow and an overall gray day.
