Staying home this weekend. Gotta save up money. Somehow, taking trips over long weekends mean spending more money than necessary. It'll be good to just relax at home and I think I'll enjoy it more knowing a lot of people will be leaving town for a few days. Peace and quiet. Bliss!

I will be spending the weekend here, working and socializing and running errands, and allowing lots and lots of travel time since my Metro station will be closed.

Going to the Nationals game on Monday. I always drive because for me it's faster than Metro, and since Monday is a holiday that means free parking. :-)

Heading out of town, flying through DCA because it's always so easy to get there and back via Metro. Oh wait. My Metro station will be closed when I return. Wonder how my suitcase will fare on the shuttles.

I am attending a wedding in Williamsburg, VA and was planning to travel from Union Station on Amtrak. I was informed this afternoon that all travel between DC and Williamsburg has been cancelled *all* weekend. Amtrak confirmed this, but I haven't been able to locate any more information.

I would think that train service would be the most reliable during the storm, and right now the storm path looks like it is barely going to hit and will be gone by Friday AM. Does anyone have any further insight on this? Thanks!
