The As You Wish crew (thank you, Martha!) sent some wonderful photos from yesterday. They clearly show the guillotine-style gate of Lock 17 and what a rainy day it was.
|Lock 17. Two boats are in, the 3rd took the shot.|

Note Russ in his rain gear.

As the day progressed, the situation got worse on the canal. First only lock 18 and 19 were closed. Then all the locks down to 8 were closed. Later still, all the locks along the canal and up to Oswego were closed.
By the time we went to bed, however, the next few locks above us were opened. At least we'll be able to progress just a bit tomorrow.
