Default Live from the Harvey Canal levee - the MQ

Here are the current shots of the MISSISSIPPI QUEEN, taken an hour ago, today Nov. 9, 2010. She's in the same place, 3800 Peters Road, as she was in June. Folks, these shots don't show how gray she is. I didn't even venture up close, no way. It might be dirt from the industrial area, but she looks far filthier than 5 months ago. However, please note she is still intact as she was in June - no official dismantling. There were 2 men walking the outside decks, no idea who they were. Look and weep.
I have several more pix, but the connection is slow here and its time for a steamboat ride, so I'll post more tonight. By the way, the river stage is 2.4. I've been here when it was only 1.something and that sandbar hadn't shown then yet.
