What a great day. I had the smoothest commute to Alexandria since the day after the blizzard last winter. Since I arrived at the MRC early, I wandered down to the end of King Street, where the Potomac has flooded up the street a block or two, and there were a pile of cameras there (three local stations and CNN’s David Ensor). There were gawkers galore, and more dog-walkers in one place than I’ve ever seen before. It feels like a real storm down here. Out in Prince William County, it seemed boring, quite a let-down from the Irwin Allen disaster movie we were bracing for. Laura even was treated to the “Survivor” premiere without it being canceled by panicky storm coverage. But she wanted more storm drama!
MRC is up and running today, and stayed up until 3 PM yesterday, although I skipped it. But no morning shows to watch for bias since it was all local hurricane coverage. You’ll have to be our eyes and ears. What did we miss, other than the Hillary stuff?
