Well that will certainly put a crimp in the plans for a dockworkers strike!
Isn’t this cyclic ?
Don't mind me, just another watchman blowing the trumpet even though the people aren't listening.......
I thought I saw a story a few days ago about taking water from the river for??
No, I’m sure this incorrect. Global Warming dictates that water levels will rise. /s
Just wait until the Red freezes and thaws, all will be good.
East Side (of the Long Muddy) represent! Not our fault. Must be the lame Mizzou and the upper tributes.
After all this snow and the storms...I don’t think so. Wait until the season is over and then get back to us.
This is BS. It's been above freezing almost the entire month of Nov. and Dec. in most parts of the country (where the Miss.River runs) and we've had a LOT of rain this fall so...you decide.
I work where we overlook the Mississippi and it is terribly low and has been since mid summer. The barge traffic has almost completely stopped - they had been doing some dredging to keep it open but it looks like it’s beyond that now.
spring & summer drought in parts of the midwest, and then winter comes and precipitation turns to snow instead of immediate runoff
a situation that has been repeated many times on the Mississippi
Maybe Obama, Reid, and Boehner can get together and use the same logic as fixing the econmy by raising taxes on the rich.
Just pour a gallon of water in the River should take care of the problem until next Christmas. Now if they can just get the chucleheads to agree, we will avert a crisis.
