Groundbreaking in the Louisville area

Normally, groundbreaking ceremonies can be pretty dull. Often the best thing about them is that you get access to people who normally wouldn't talk to you because they pay people to do that. And it's a good time for media jackals like me to get file photos for later use.

Still, I would like to be in Jeffersonville, Ind., next week when ground will be broken for the new Ohio River Bridges project. It's been nearly ten years since I was down that way, and while I remember few details of driving through there, I recall that I didn't care for the interstate highway there along the river.

It was kind of like when I was in Cincinnati that summer. I did my best to avoid the Brent Spence bridge.

M/V Escatawpa at night

Tonight I got some shots of the M/V Escatawpa, which I usually see on the Kanawha River, doing some nighttime stuff near the mouth. I put them on Flickr because I trust it to load my higher-res images better. Three of the photos are here, here and here.
