Captain’s Comments: Around 2000 Wednesday a front with 40-kt winds from the North hit with no warning and turned the area into a dust bowl with very restricted visibility. Dust came from adjacent gravel area and bulk facilities. We were tied up well, so no worries.

A sizeable floating dock broke loose upstream and came hurtling down the river at 6 knots (the water was pushed upstream by the strong northerlies and rushed out after the winds came back into the south). Quite a spectacle. The Coast Guard had their hands full corralling the tearaway.
