Fun on a rainy day

While the rest of the upper midwest and east coast were getting snow and ice, southern Ohio had rain today - lots of it! Since I had the day off (President's day) we drove down to Marietta for breakfast, then took off cross country following the Muskingum River northward.
This is the cooling tower at the coal burning power plant outside Beverly.
This is a lowhead dam at Stockport, right beside the lock #6
This is the Stockport mill, which has been converted into an inn.  The restaurant is said to be quite good.  Here is the website.  Be sure to visit it and read about the hydroelectric power, and the history of the mill.
