One of the requirements of being an uber Geek is having your own web pages. I have a wiki that I use to keep all of my bookmarks and information in a pretty easy to browse collection. It is in need of some pruning so sitting here in the warmth of Tavernier FL I have a chance to do some “wikipruning”.
I have a pretty good collection of links back to the Army Corps of Engineer sites to track the locks down the middle of the county.
My favorite is this one: http://corpslocks.usace.army.mil/lpwb/f?p=121:4:0:::::
The ACoE Lock Performance System Montoring. It allows you to select what river system you want to look at. It then returns the current status of the lock. Sometimes there are additional comments by the lock master on the wall or gate status, or even a holiday greeting.
And sometimes there are pictures!! While many of us have been or will be through the locks during nicer weather, here is some pictures of locks across the middle of winter. Even though we are waiting out winter, the tows are still moving goods up and down the rivers. I’m sure crunching through the ice makes for an interesting ride.
