To be in Madison, Indiana

They're moving the first section of steel truss into place for the new bridge between Madison, Ind., and Milton, Ky.

Link here.

Who among us wouldn't want to see that sight in person?

Low flow (Updated)

Another sign we haven't had a lot of rain here in the upper middle part of the Ohio River: The Huntington District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is restricting lockages of recreational craft to even-numbered hours.

I hear we won't get rain for a while, and the daytime temps could hit 100 by Friday.

UPDATE: I took the link down. It's not working. Instead, here is a news release that says the same thing.

Putting it back together

Here's one last set of photos from when the M/V Andi Boyd made the trip through the Greenup Locks and Dam in two cuts. The M/V AEP Future pulled the first nine barges out. Then the Andi Boyd came out with the other five.

That meant the deckhands had to use the wires and ratchets and toothpicks and such to put the barges back together.
