    There was a sizable ice patch on the Custis east of the moguls at the intersection with the side trail up to 20th St. I saw what looked like a red bike light (still lit, but not blinking) that may have fallen off in a crash among the debris up against the wall on the I-66 (westbound) side of the trail. If you went down on that ice and are missing a light, you might want to look around for it there.

    I finally got revenge on that bridge for taking me out on AFHokie's ride to Annapolis.

    All clear this morning down from the IOD, along the MVT through Roosevelt. Trollheim looked like it had some slush on it at the intersection, but the Roosevelt bridge was just fine.

    Default Hissing Goose

    Really? Seems too early in the season, but this morning a pair of geese were hanging out on the channel side of the Navy-Merchant Marine Memorial. One on the grass and one on the trail hissing at me as I rode by. I swear this gets earlier each year.

    So, warning geese are in their protective mode. No goslings yet spotted.

    Response to a suspicious vehicle. Appears to be unfounded.

    According to the Secret Service Twitter feed - suspicious vehicle in the area ("near 17th street NW") that resulted in the evacuation of the New Executive Office Building and various road closures.
