Redskins Park Flooded

Last night we had water trickling in through our living room window. It wasn't that great, but a few towels took care of most of the problem.

Well, the Redskins need more than a few towels. The video on the frontpage of tells the story a lot better than I could; Larry Michael says about three feet of water have overrun a nearby creek and swamped the practice facility, nearly submerging tackling dummies.

"It's just a river of water," Michael says on the video, and indeed, those are my favorite sorts of rivers.

How much water is there? Enough Fred Smoot is already looking into booking the first Redskins Park cruise.

How much water is there? Enough that bottled water during training camp will only go for $3.50 a pop this year.

How much water is there? Enough that, for once, everyone can agree that someone in Ashburn has gone off the deep end.

The land all along the Loudoun County Pkwy is flooded...this is all due to the construction going on around Redskin Park over the last 2 months...there like 5 different projects going on at the same time, and a new golf course...a ton of land shaping lately.

"It's just a river of water" is just a sentence of words.

"'It's just a river of water, Michael says on the video, and indeed, those are my favorite sorts of rivers." It's reassuring to know that you don't prefer rivers of blood. Otherwise we'd have one messy bog.
