Default Snow Belle!

Thanks for sharing that wonderful sound on this site and on Facebook. When the BELLE comes upriver for a shakedown, please blow a whistle for the museum when you get to the Jeffboat marine ways. It always "makes my day"!

We awakened this morning to a dusting of snow, gusty winds and chilly temps! This weather is relentless! I remember, LONG AGO, when I was a crew member on the BELLE in the early 1970's and our first charter of the season was for the University of Louisville during the first week of April. That night it snowed so hard that Capt. Harris Underwood, longtime pilot on the BELLE, could barely see the roof bell! BUT, it was technically spring and we were steamboating!
