Power move

Thursday afternoon saw the Dutch flagged cargo ship Floretgracht come down the North River from Albany on the way out to sea. The vessel had arrived earlier in the week from Northern Europe carrying steel cable spools according to the Port of Albany’s Twitter feed. The spools are for the Champlain Hudson Power Express, a new transmission line being constructed to bring clean energy generated upstate and in Canada down to New York City. Other traffic on the River this week has been more typical. As we head into the final days of March, days continue to begin cold, even below freezing on Friday morning, but the spring sun warms us as we move into afternoon.
