    Default March 2018 Trail and Road Conditions

    According to WTOP, we're all going to die tomorrow. And part of Saturday.

    It should be interesting. I'm mostly just concerned about getting across the Potomac. There have been days with less fanfare than this one where keeping the rubber side down on the bridge was challenging.

    My commute is heavily tree'd and sees lots of downed branches even in routine storms...there's also the issue of crossing the river. So yeah, I'll take the bus.

    Pay extra attention to runners on very windy days. Wind throws dust in their eyes and faces, so they turn around without looking and assume no one crazier than they are. When it was in the 25 to 30 MPH sustained wind range more than a year ago, I encountered 2 to 3 runners doing quick U-Turns within minutes of each other, luckily I was slow.

    I don't recommend practicing your danger pandas today. The cross winds are brutal.

    I rode from Clarendon to Courthouse (~1 mile)... It was scary. I am glad I drove most of the way in (but there is nowhere to park that does not cost $14-20/day, so I just drove to Station 4 and parked there). I may take the metro back to Clarendon this afternoon though if I can not find a lull in the gusts.

    WaPo says the worst of the wind will depart by noon... so I'm planning an afternoon sleeze ride. Even with the worst of it gone it'll still be pretty brutal though.

    Tailwinds all of the way in to downtown, but going home will be a bear. Crossing Key Bridge was not bad, but I was on the down river side. Minor debris on the Custis.

    CCT was all clear and quite pleasant. Then I got downtown and turned a different direction, and it was like being pushed sideways. Riding into the wind, I could barely move.
