Weekend update and a somber anniversary

The weekend passed with pleasant but hot weather on Friday and Saturday followed by rain without thunder on Sunday. Commercial activity picked up Sunday evening but was otherwise light. The cruise terminal was busy though, with Carnival Magic in on Friday, three boats visiting Saturday and a final Royal Norwegian boat here on Sunday, with dredging activity going on all the while in between. The 9/11 anniversary on Sunday brought some police traffic heading for the ceremonies downtown.
