Breaking the heat wave

The heat wave of the past few days finally broke on Monday, with cooler air moving in and heavy thunderstorms hitting in the afternoon, knocking sailors and other recreational boats off the River. Commercial traffic was light and not particularly notable. Saint Emilion, Morgan Reinauer, and Mako remained at anchor in the River in the morning, but Saint Emilion left by midday and headed for IMTT in Bayonne. Mako also left at midday, but made a loop down in the Upper Bay and came back to its original spot, still killing time.
