Dredgery

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Last weekend while walking the Erie Canal in Fairport I saw a hydraulic dredge parked in the village and thought it was pretty cool. As far as I can tell, this thing is like a big floating vacuum cleaner. It's got a big nasty auger that gets dragged along the bottom loosening the sediment that gets sucked up and filtered out.

I really wanted to climb on it, but Rachelle didn't let me.

So according to the local news stations, this dredge sunk out in Palmyra! The only word that comes to mind is...SUCK!
