FREEZING IN PEORIA

BARGES STUCK IN ILLINOIS RIVER

For many years I have driven along the Illinois River this time of year to see eagles. I HAVE NEVER SEEN SO MANY BARGES STUCK IN THE ILLINOIS RIVER. I saw 5 or more today. The fish eating birds need the barges to break up the water so that they can find food.
