    Boardwalks and bridges along the Potomac were very frosty this morning. Be prepared for lowered traction!

    GWMP at Gravelly Point. It seems that a light pole was felled by an auto last nightClick image for larger version.

    Given that the light pole wasn't wearing anything reflective, it probably wasn't the driver's fault.

    It was down when I biked through there around 7pm yesterday, so it must have gone down sometime before then.

    It was down Sunday morning when I biked through (unless another one went down). I am surprised that it hasn't been cleared away yet.

    When I went home yesterday afternoon, they had placed barriers beside the trail and covered detour signs. When I went through this morning, they were still there and the trail was still open.

    I expect they will have everything in place sometime today for the detour.

    Yeah, looked like they did some survey work or utility marking yesterday...planning for a detour tonight.
