Busy river for a Sunday

This was a really busy Sunday on the river here in my area. I saw the Mary Harter, a Crounse boat in the distance, a 1960s-era Dravo in the distance, the Titan (I think), the D.A. Grimm, the R.L. Carter Jr., the Charleston, the Lelia C. Shearer and another Campbell boat. That's a lot more than a normally see on a Sunday trip from Huntington to Point Pleasant, W.Va.

I don't know if a lot of coal is moving now or what, but for some reason the Ohio River was busy with towboats today.

UPDATE: Here is is shortly after 9 p.m. I just checked vessel locations. At least 13 boats locked through Greenup upbound today, and at least 7 locked through RC Byrd downbound. Yeah, that looks pretty busy.
