Life on the River for June 3, 2013

 It was a beautiful morning here even though the temperature was in the mid-40's.  A patchy frost was predicted but it never happened here.  However, tonight's forecast looks like we may be hit with frost.  I'm sure June 4 is a late date for frost.   According to Dave's Garden web site, our average last frost date is May 28 so I guess this isn't too far out of normal.

The boat traffic seemed slow today but I was able to get photos of some of them.  If the boat is going to the right in the picture, it is heading down stream.  Heading left-going up bound.   It takes them about an hour to get to the Locks from our place.

The water level in the Rock Cut was a concern to the captains today. Early in the day it was about 4 inches below datum but rose throughout the day as the wind died down.  You can check the water level of the Rock Cut with this link-Rock Cut Water Level.  Scroll down the left side of the page to find Rock Cut and you will see several charts of data.  Very interesting.
