A couple of things

Sorry for no postings lately, I've been trying to earn some money. You know how that goes.


The W.P. Snyder Jr. will have to wait a while longer to get to its new home in Marietta.

Here is one paragraph of a news story about it. I don't plan to pay for access, so this is all I have right now.

Except that Neale Marine Transportation & Fleeting has the story on what's happening, too:

With the water level predicted to rise above 30 feet on the Marietta gage over the weekend, the W.P. Snyder Jr. was moved to our fleet this afternoon to ride out the rise. She and Amherst Madison's Lady Lois are now in their new temporary home in our fleet and will be here until river levels drop and conditions stabilize enough to attempt to return the W.P. Snyder Jr. to her permanent home at the Ohio River Museum on the Muskingum River.

If you wan to see the picture, go to Neale's Facebook page.


Don't do this.

Around here, people have drowned trying to avoid police by jumping into the river.

Don't be this stupid. Please.
