Winter here; high water coming

Today, Dec. 1, is generally considered the first day of meteorological winter. I went down to the Ohio River today, and it looked like the winter river. It was up a few feet, covering the lower areas of some public access points.

According to the National Weather Service, the river should rise in the next few days and then quickly fall back to its present level. The river won't flood, but it will be several feet higher before it goes down again. The crest, if you want to call it that, will arrive in Pittsburgh today or tomorrow. Wheeling, tomorrow or Friday. Point Pleasant, late Friday. Huntington, around noon Saturday. Cincinnati, Sunday or Monday. Owensboro, Wednesday or Thursday.

This does not pertain to high water,did you miss the new towboat Aep Legacy last week as it was on the upper Ohio. I'm surprise you have not posted something??

I put up three pictures last week, but for some reason I labeled them as the AEP Leader. D'oh.
