Another link

I've added a link for Neale Marine Transportation & Fleeting LLC over on the left side of this page.

Anyone with an Ohio River-related web site who would like to be linked, just drop me a line. Of course, I have final say on who is linked and who's not, but I'm sort of easygoing with this.

Leftovers, first quarter, 2012

Tonight I was looking over some pictures I had taken in the first three months of this year, and I found a few that might be classified as leftovers.

So here they are:

First, a January sunrise over Huntington, WV. The river was smooth until a boat -- I think it was the Bruce Darst -- came through.

A few weeks later, I was at the West Virginia side of the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam on a rainy evening when the Bridgett Caulley came by to lock upbound. (I seem to have a few names I can never get right the first time I type them. "Bridget Caulley" is one of them).

On our way back from Steubenville to watch the bridge demolition, Adam and I found this historical marker on WV Route 2 south of Wheeling. It led to a talk about the history of mine disasters.

And on a Sunday morning, coming back from Charleston WV following a lesson on how to apply makeup to myself should I be called upon to go on TV again -- makeup is a must for HD TV -- I swung by the John Amos power plant on the Kanawha River and saw this guy unloading a barge of gravel. Gravel contains limestone for the power plant's srubbers.
