M/V Detroit 8/2/2015

Adam and I saw the Detroit coming down the river today, so we got a few pictures as it passed Huntington.

More photos of the Detroit are at my Flickr photostream.

A bridge too dark

It seems the Bridge of Honor between Pomeroy, Ohio, and Mason, W.Va. -- in the upper end of the Robert C. Byrd pool -- has gone dark and local officials want the purple lights turned back on. (I always thought they were purple, but technically they are indigo, according to the article).

I don't know about other regions along the Ohio River, but around here people expect their cable stay bridges to be lit at night. It's hard telling what's going on behind the scenes with this. But the bridge did look good in its indigo colors when it was new.
