Cloudy day

It was warm enough yesterday that Adam and I spent a little time down by the river before we ventured out to the mall to see if traffic was as bad as we thought it would be. It was worse.

Back to the river ...

From Chesapeake OH we watched the AEP Legacy pass beautiful downtown Huntington upbound.

We knew this was coming. The Miss Mae was pushing to office- or dormitory-type structures -- or whatever they were -- and it looked like she was steering mainly by radar. The wind was pretty brisk at times, and we wondered if that caused any additional problems steering this tow.

After the AEP Legacy passed our spot, we noticed it moved to one side of the river and almost stopped. That got us wondering if another boat was coming down. Yes, there was. The Tennessee Hunter, actually.

And that was about it on the river. The day was warm and cloudy. Traffic at West Virginia's largest mall, which is about 10 miles from Huntington, was nasty. You can have it.
