    There were several inches of water on 4MRT way back at Mount Vernon Avenue, so I bailed and took Eads.

    Water had receded around 8:30am.

    So do I need to consult a tide chart before riding?

    Either that or make sure your favorite weather app will transmit coastal flood advisories for Alexandria.

    Yes. Almost all of the trail flooding recently has been tidal. Potomac is pretty high right now.

    That is what I'll need to do before we run Monuments at Night Redux this evening...

    The ramp up to the 14th Street Bridge was closed tonight. While I took the stairs, I doubt I'll do that often. The fact that the side of the stairs was discontinuous (the stairs got narrower about halfway up) made rolling the bike up a bit annoying.

    NPS has started their unofficial CX season.

    Not sure why the image is rotated. Sorry.

    Saw Smokey Joe the umbrella man walking southbound on Eads street this morning instead of the trail, seems like a bad omen

    Default 14th Street Bridge

    Just heard from the NPS on the stairway. They said "We are working on a temp runnel. Hopefully installed soon."

    Stay tuned.
