Wednesday's Word
formerly known as the "What're Words For..."

Word: Heavy water (n. phrase), on New England waterways, this has nothing to do with nuclear physics
Definition: Heavy water is the main current, the place where you want the canoe to go unless you wish to paint some rocks with it along the way.

“Make sure you take the heavy water on the left when you pass the big rock that’s split in two. It looks deep enough on the right, but it isn’t.”

(Definition from: "How To Talk Yankee", by Gerald Lewis & Tim Sample, copyright 1979, 1986 by The Thorndike Press; copyright 1989 by the First North Country Press)
