You are absolutely right, Judy! I'll never forget pulling into Marietta about 0600 during the deadhead portion of the first cruise up to Pittsburgh in '95. The landing was well dotted with folks covered with blankets, having stayed all night despite our considerable delay. As we came about after the whistle salute I noticed that the paddlewheel was motionless, remember thinking how it must have seemed to those watching. Pleanty of "ah- ha!" moments on the river, guess this one was an "uh- ohhhh!".
