Stormy Monday

Monday brought moderate temperatures and periodic thunderstorms passing through, with more on the way in the evening. Tanker traffic remained fairly heavy on the River. Meanwhile, in reporting for West Side Rag, we learned Ken’s Marine has been retained by the insurance company of the 48’ yacht which sank in the River on Saturday to salvage the vessel off the bottom. A deck barge and tug were over the location this morning, along with a 45’ Coast Guard boat, though the weather systems passing through may have interfered with their work. See the West Side Rag article for more.

A trio of large Army helicopters headed north up the river. Look closely and you can see legs of presumably tethered soldiers dangling off the rear ramps.
