Only four boats in done day?

If anyone needed another indication of how much river traffic has fallen off here in my area, take at look at this number. According to the Corps of Engineers, only four boats went through the Robert C. Byrd (nee Gallipolis) Locks and Dam on Friday, March 25.

Four boats.

Either the number is wrong or traffic is way down. I remember growing up along the river in that area, and four boats was a normal afternoon not that long ago.

The four boats, for the record, were the City of Paducah, the Findlay, the Kim M. Settoon and the Transporter.
