Here Comes the Rain

Rain has hit in a hard way south of the city, causing some problems on I-95. Traffic still isn't much worse than many regular work days, but it's something to keep an eye on. I-66 is heavy in Manassas and beyond, but clears up after Gainesville. I-270 is heavy, but clears up after it goes down to two lanes, BUT drivers taking I-70 west should watch out for heavy traffic between Frederick and Hagerstown. And down in Hampton Roads, the bridge tunnel backup is several miles. Stop off and get some dinner and wait for that one to clear up if you're headed out that way.

Check out Memorial Day parade closings here and Rolling Thunder closings here.

Info on both parades can also be found here and here.

The lack of coverage in the Washington Post of Rolling Thunder in Washington on Memorial Day weekend is a disgrace and a clear evidence of the Washington Post bias. In the Sunday paper there was a tiny article on page 2 of the Metro section under Driving Hot Spots under Tip of the Week with a bare mention that the event was occuring. Although there is an expected 100,000 riders driving through downtown Washington, apparently to the Post it is a non event. I'm sure if there was 100,000 person demonstration against the military and the administration it would be front page headlines.

Isn't it sad that a little bit of rain causes massive delays and congestion? Just shows how fragile our system is.
