Oglebay Norton takes Santa for a ride

The Oglebay Norton arrived in port early this morning to load coal. Santa Claus is often on this boat and can usually be seen waving from the pilot house when the boat goes under the Lift Bridge. That should happen this afternoon. Patrick Nelson captains the boat and the last time I saw him, he had a long white beard. We now have a clue where Santa gets his lumps of coal.
