Holiday week

The last week of August and unofficial end of summer brought typical hot temperatures and limited commercial traffic. Several tanker barges which had been idled in the North River over the weekend headed out, but not to pick up new cargos, instead anchoring elsewhere in the harbor. Patrice McCalister remained on the River off Edgewater, and she was joined by Reinauer’s Josephine who returned from upstate with a light barge.
