Got in from DC not too long ago. The trip home took 7 hours and 10 minutes (as opposed to the 6 hours and 15 minutes it took to initially get there). The big difference was due mainly to 270 being a parking lot. Sitting there, listening to G. Gordon Liddy's radio show, the thought came to me that maybe I don't miss the area as much as I thought. Traffic this bad at 3 pm on a Monday afternoon? Turns out that it wasn't the usual hellish DC traffic, but the result of a 6 car pile up. Whew!
The free DC Metro Area apartment finder book is 3 times bigger than its Columbus counterpart. I think it must be the New International Version. My housing choices seem limitless. Especially since I haven't established what my budget will be.
Fun fact: a lightning bug still glows after smashing into the windshield of a car traveling at 80 mph.
My whirlwind trip has really got me yearning to move back to the District of Crack (well, actually Alexandria). The job search efforts must be raised...after my Hilton Head trip.
