OHIO RIVER ICE

Three Rivers Stadium and the Ohio River

School got called off so I went to take some photographs on the way home.

1degree and -16 windchill.   I didn’t stay long with my cameras.

My friends Deb and Sy live downstream along the Ohio River.  They emailed me the cell phone photos they took at eye level as the tug cut through frozen Ohio River ice

  1. Oh my gosh! The 3rd photo is my favorite, with the Point, the red Incline, the first bridges across both the Mon and the Allegheny and the shadowy City looming in the background.! Plus all the paths …… roads, rivers, bridges, Incline tracks, train tracks AND the barge path!!! Thank yo u for your photos taken on your Snow Day!!!

  2. You are brave to go up to Mt. Washington in that cold and wind, but the pictures were worth it. Stay warm!

Hope writing a comment today is not a major hassle.....I appreciate hearing from you when you have a minute.
