Summer is drawing to a close, but you wouldn’t know from the temperature, which remained hot Saturday. Winds were light and out of the north all day, providing less relief than in recent days. Commercial traffic on the River was heavy. The Cape Henry remained at anchor off 86th Street after arriving Friday evening and was joined by the Timothy Reinauer a bit further north later. Kimberly Poling, which had been anchored off Edgewater overnight, left in the morning hours for more cargo.
One notable move was a deck barge with varied cargo heading up from Wilmington towards the Port of Albany. The containers on the front of the barge where marked with signs saying NextEra, a green energy company with a number of solar projects upstate so presumably this is solar equipment heading north.
