107.8 degrees

Is 107.8 degrees too hot for the Ohio River? The U.S. EPA thinks so.

The Ohio River downstream of the J.M. Stuart power plant in Adams County, Ohio, was measured at that temperature, leading the U.S. EPA to tell the Ohio EPA (a state agency) to correct that situation.

This from an article in The Columbus Dispatch.

I missed the Omar

It was in the Greenup pool today while I was out of town. Now it's at Greenup waiting to lock downbound. I haven't seen that boat in maybe 20 years, when it was owned by Ohio River Company. It was one of my favorites because of the way the engines it had at the time shook the windows of every building it passed.

Maybe I'll get to see it in 2031.
