Terrible time to visit the Nation's Capital. Rain here in DC until Sunday, and with the shutdown, not much to see in terms of the monuments and such.
Of course, my Dad and his wife are driving up from Florida tomorrow and arriving Saturday. :roll:
Seriously though, I have been missing family a lot and the time he will have with his Grandson will be well needed.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

If you are serious about going into DC, there is a truckers strike involving thousands of tractor trailer drivers and teams protesting low wages, high fuel prices, regulations, and just this week they added the government shutdown to the list. This has been planned for well over a month. They plan on causing nothing but gridlock and traffic tie ups all through out the region making travel nearly impossible.

Yep, well aware of it.
I'm all for protesting the way our government is "working" :roll: these days, but this type of protest really isn't going to hurt anyone but us who live here and have to travel. Parents with kids, elderly, and those trying to make a living are the ones who are going to pay.
If they really want to make a statement, they shouldn't be planning on stopping traffic on the beltway, as they are, but rather, take those rigs right into the city on Capitol St. and flood those areas...on a WEEKDAY. As it is, people don't have to take the beltway, there are alternatives. And those who may be going in the city over the weekend can just park at the metro stations that are numerous on the outside of the beltway, then just ride on in.
I really don't think this was planned out very well. I see they have a lot of support from people who don't live in DC, but for those of us who do...well, we're not feeling very appreciative or supportive right now. :x
And this is from someone who's spouse works at the Navy Yard, and was furloughed earlier this year, and this time as well.

You really are the bomb Annalee! ;)
Mt. Vernon is a place I haven't visited in the short time we've lived here and my step-mom loves that place. I've ridden the Mt. Vernon bike trail up and down that way, just haven't gone in. It really is beautiful around there....I can see why it was Washington's favorite place.

Now I know what people have complained about the end of Speed and the take over by Fox and whatever we used to count on. What's up with Victory Lane at 11 PM? Also we get to miss "stuff" because we wouldn't dare miss a second of some out of nowhere college football game. But then this isn't a shock as football has always knocked everything out of their way. Guess I'll watch Motocross or drag racing as they have as much action as anyone else. But then didn't Speed follow them?
