Wordless Wednesday- Mississippi River Ice

My Dad works on the Mississippi River at a barge cleaning plant, and this picture was taken this morning outside of his office.

Mississippi River Ice

The plant is on “cold watch” right now, which basically means a skeleton crew and Dad is one of the guys who has to go in and make sure the office barge doesn’t sink or anything crazy like that.
