Delaware River Report / Update August 14, 2012

Aug 14, 2012 Comments Off by

A bit of a wacky day out there yesterday with activity in random places up and down the river. We had Tricos early in the day, with certain sections lighting right up, and others completely dead. Definitely a weird one. The forecast for today and the rest of the week certainly has gotten  more interesting for sure – scattered thunderstorms and rain predicted throughout, as well as some decent cloud cover. This could end up being a spectacular (summer) week here – let’s home the jack wagons making predictions (this one included) get it right!
