Another storm coming

With another winter storm set to strike, Thursday saw a handful of cargos moving upriver. The Vames Brothers Philadelphia came through with a loaded barge, as did the Evelyn Cutler.

The Teresa, now in its third week at anchor here, got some company as the Cape Canaveral arrived overnight after a delivery in Providence and dropped anchor. The two tugs are similar looking and once served the same company before the Teresa, which is an older boat, was sold.

Mister Jim came through pushing a hopper with what looks like gravel or aggregate down from its home port of Coeymans, just 2 days after pushing a load of asphalt millings upriver.
