A low pressure system has camped out over New York, sucking in moisture and rain for a second day. There was a bit of northbound traffic worth noting in the morning. The Janice Ann Reinauer came through with a loaded barge from Bayonne heading to Newburgh.
Captain Dann came through pulling a large Weeks Marine crane, with a tug owned by Weeks also pushing from behind. By the end of the day they had passed the Bear Mountain Bridge and still seemed to be underway.
Weather steadily deteriorated into the afternoon. Dann Marine’s Coral Cost, which started the day in Flushing Bay, came through with an empty cement barge heading back to the Lafarge plant in Ravenna and overtook the Evelyn Cutler pushing product loaded in Cateret towards Albany.
Municipal services continued to operate, with Donjon Marine moving paper for recycling to Staten Island, with the cargo presumably arriving pretty wet. The DEP’s Rockaway tanker was servicing the North River plant for a change, instead of the Red Hook which has been doing the honors recently.
