Hi Folks -
Several people have been wondering about the D.C. weather in relation
to the Army Band Tuba-Euph Conference the next 3 days...
I spent 4 hours last night and 3 hours this morning out and about in
my Jeep as part of the County Hospital "Doctor and Nurse Delivery
Service" crew, so I've been all around the D.C./Baltimore Metro
The main roads - major highways, intestates, etc., are all fine at
this point (Last night around 9:00 p.m. was another story...).
The plow crews really got to work after midnight, and by this
evening (WED), I wouldn't think that you would have any problems
getting around on the main roads at all. They are 90% clean right
Some of the secondary streets are still pretty trashed, but folks
with 4x4 capability are getting around pretty good. It is a bright,
clear, sunny day here today, so the crews will be working hard to
get everything clean by tonight, I'm sure.
The rural areas look like the Arctic - minus the tracks my Jeep
left (it really was the best way to get home, honest!)- but you won't
be anywhere near anything that remotely resembles "rural" in the Ft.
Myer area, so no worries.
Bottom line: if you are coming into D.C. for the Ft. Myer show, you
shouldn't have any problems on the main roads. I would think that by
tonight and/or tomorrow morning (THU), everything should be
normal (and I use that word rather loosely when describing D.C.)
But Drive Safe! (even with perfect weather, I wouldn't necessarily
call I-395 a "driver friendly" environment!! Ha!)
Hope to see y'all at the show -
