Adam had an all-night birthday party to attend yesterday evening. I was supposed to pick him up at noon, so I left early to go down to the river to get a picture of something interesting. It was cold and windy. I didn't see anything I hadn't shot before, so I stayed in the warm car.

I've stood out in wind chills of below zero to get a shot worth shooting. But today there was just a thin layer of snow. The light wasn't unusual. There were no boats in about ten miles of river that I looked at. Just ... nothing interesting today.

Tomorrow, however, we're going to Point Pleasant for the dedication of the O. Nelson Jones towboat simulator at the river museum and to attend the public tours of the boat itself if those are still on, considering the weather.

Pictures tomorrow evening, we hope.
