poking my head out
Driving home last night from the post-burial gathering in Bethesda should have taken about 20 minutes or so, and took more than two hours. One surprising thing I noticed was how much better the roads in DC were than the ones in Maryland. Further, a whole bunch of folks from Silver Spring will be doing shabbat in DC because there isn't any power in their neighborhood. I think if I were ever considering moving, I would want to take reliability of basic services into account, but I don't know anyone who does.

Tonight, we began principal basic-track recording for the new Franchise CD, and I think we have a solid take of Return to Me. Yay!

The news about recording getting underway is welcome. I'm happy to hear it. I'll be even happier to hear the result!

Regarding the weather, be happy you got home. A colleague from work left at 7 PM. At 7 AM, he called in from his Jeep, still 15 miles from home. (Then again, maybe that'll teach him to live in Hagerstown and work in DC!)

Driving to Herndon this morning, I was surprised at all of the abandoned vehicles in the middle of the Dulles Toll Road - the plows had gone around them, and the cars were resting on little bubbles of snow. What I wondered was where did the people actually go? The DTR is limited access, and not terribly close to many residential areas, so was there a flood of long-distance walkers? Also, given that these cars were one-by-one, it seemed like all of the people around them were able to move, so I'm surprised that they couldn't.
