    Tree down on the Custis at the top of the hill between the S-turn and the sisters. Easy to see since it's at the top of the hill. The branches were much harder to see in the dark. Pics at 11:00.

    Or now:

    It was easier riding the Custis Trail than the Fairfax Dr bike lanes although as was previously said there was lots of tree litter on the trail. I did not go as far as the downed tree.
    Heading west the wind was kicking up lots of grit off the street.

    There is apparently a tree down on the CCT now, along with even more debris.

    Yes. I went into DC for a 9am event. The Whitehurst was great!! Whooosh!
    Also, I didn't know the government was closed. But the trail was eerily empty, so I kind of figured it out.
    Nice crosswind on the 14th St. Bridge. No one else was on it, so I stayed right in the middle, which allowed for more room to get buffeted.
    Check my Instagram for a video of the whitecaps on the tidal basin.

    9 am this morning there was a work crew blocking the intersection of Columbia and Van Buren in Falls Church working on the power lines. At the same time a crew was cutting up a fallen tree in Benjamin Banneker Park that was across the smaller trail by the children's play area. Traffic lights were out at the intersections of Haycock Rd with both Great Falls and Westmoreland. There was a tree down on Harrison St just before 26th by Duck Donuts in Arlington. It had been cut up so that it did not block the regular traffic lanes, but the cut up sections were left in the northbound bike lane and the parking lane. The power line was down there too. Saw several trees down not blocking roads or trails.

    Tree down on W&OD behind Idylwood Park along the I-66 ramp to the beltway today about 12:30. Suggest diverting through the park.

    Large tree down on the Mt. Vernon Trail past the Intersection of Doom. You can throw your bike over and climb over. I didn't take a picture of it sadly.
