More snow, December 18, 2008

River Pilots in the Snow December 18, 2008

Don't you love the day-glo green? I do. Especially in near white-out conditions. Two river pilots are either going to or coming from work. It's a nice day to go out on the water in a small boat and climb a ladder onto a ship, yes? They laughed a friendly greeting when they saw me taking their picture. The location is the River Walk at 15th Street, just outside my store. That's Marine Drive where you can see headlights and cars.
The weather on December 18th was truly chaotic, with snow one minute, hail the next, then sun and blue skies, then snow, then hail again. I couldn't help running outside with my camera every few minutes, and if you'd like to see the results, I posted about it that day on my personal blog.

Wasn't last year something with all the snow. I was snowed in for days and had the grandboys with me and they were sure getting tired of it. We are just not used to SOOO much snow. Well I didn't mind the snow I didn't like not being able to get my car out. My daughters in their big 4 wheel drive trucks went on their merry way. Way down the hill there wasn't as much snow though.
The previous photo is a beauty. Hope you had a merry one. MB

Can you imagine what it must feel like to pilot some enormous freighter through a narrow channel?
