Winter rise

Thanks to C.R. Neale for the reminder ...

I was planning a mid-afternoon visit to the Ohio River here at Huntington WV to see what's going on with the river, as some of the tributaries are getting kind of high. According to the forecast, we can expect a 12-foot rise in the next 48 hours, followed by a quick fall.

What can I say? It's winter. This is how the river acts in winter.

/When I saw the Buckeye State going up the river at normal pool last weekend, there was hardly any wake behind those props. If we see it going upstream this weekend, I'm guessing the water will be churning harder.
