Cures for rainy day blues: D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. No way around it, a very dreary day. No worries. The D.C. area blogosphere has some ideas for finding the silver lining. All Life is Local has a primer on pedestrian safety -- especially important given the recent spate of fatal accidents.

D.C. area fans of McDonalds' boneless McRib sandwich may be in luck. We Love D.C. reports that a local McDonalds may be peddling the barbeque treat that has a cult-like following among fast-foodies.

A few quick updates about building projects, new store openings (or delayed openings) around Georgetown via the Georgetown Metropolitan.

Given the spate of recent accidents involving cars and pedestrians, All Life is Local offers this primer on city pedestrian laws. Drivers – and walkers – should read.

Here you thought it was a toy, but really it was science disguised as fun. Via Surprising Science, the secret behind Shrinky Dinks.

On a dreary day like this, it’s hard not to feel a bit blue. Capitol Hill Style offers her stylish formula for chasing the blues (and grays) away.

That's it for now. Hope you enjoyed today's selection of posts from the D.C. area blogsophere. If you've got comments -- good and bad -- feel free to post them below. Or you can send me an email at aratanil@washpost.com. Have a great evening, and stay dry.
