they must have finished off construction in the last month or so. When I was out that way a couple months ago, they still had security fencing up all around the site.

It's looking more and more like we can expect significant snowfall Friday and Saturday. Last I read, estimates were between 12 and 20 inches here in DC, and more to the north in Maryland.

Stay safe and warm everyone!!

significant snowfall combined with high winds on Saturday means there's a good chance we spend significant time without power. Be prepared everyone.

You're welcome to come ride out the storm here. There's a liquor store on my block, and grocery stores 5 blocks away

Tomorrow is going to be a traffic disaster with the Metro shut down. I'm glad I got all of my DC meetings out of the way today.

Trying to navigate the DMV by car tomorrow? Fuck that noise.

I did not hear about this, how long is the metro shut down? I'm flying in tonight.

I did get an email about longer than expected waits at the airport though.

So apparently WMATA is retarded enough to think that the 1-day shutdown wasn't all that bad traffic-wise, so shutting down for 6 months for maintenance is a plausible solution. Either this is a threat to extort more money, or WMATA is more incompetent that I give them credit for. Or both.

I'd like to know the numbers on how many people were estimated to have telecommuted to work that day.

Several of the ppl I talked to that day said they had been waiting on a bus for hours, with no luck, for every time a bus eventually came it was full.

Do you all have a lot of the dirt bikers and ATV riders in your neighborhoods? I see them occasionally, though usually closer to barracks row. They don't bother me too much, but then again I'm usually walking around those parts. And not having to drive around those idiots popping wheelies while going 5 mph down a busy road

They're rampant in Baltimore. Some city council members are seriously pushing to get a dirt bike park built in west baltimore, despite it not being legal to ride them to the park and these riders most likely dont own trailers.

We even have people riding horses through town sometimes. It's downright comical.

I'd wager that 95% of the dirt bikes you see here are stolen. I have no idea how someone living in a row house keeps a horse.

At the DC Funk Parade





======================================

Anyway, has Safe Track been a pain for anyone? This was the L'enfant Plaza platform the other day....and every day.

Hello fellow Washingtonians! It's been a while...
I'm broadcasting here from Navy Yard, just south of the Capitol. It's almost inauguration day for Trump, and things are already hyping up around here! I went running down on the mall and saw all of the setup the other day...what with the fencing, barricades, flags hanging, etc. As for myself, I'm going to steer clear of it all. I think that I will just work from home so as to avoid all of the onlookers, protesters, traffic, and rats.

If you don't hear from me again, it means that I was mauled by a pack of wild women at the Women's March on Washington.

Camera phone shots I took from the Women's march on DC the other day. There were a ton of creative signs out there...
