The Mass Exodus

I am at home today, not on the road to Toronto, where I thought I would be going for Thanksgiving. Since our travel plans changed last minute I was available to take my wife to work down at 2000 Penn. Usually, traffic on the way there at 8:30 in the morning is pretty bad but today it was easy. I guess the mass exodus for the holiday had already started. Lucky us!

This means the city and the few open businesses are all mine today and again tomorrow as the black eyed peas and collards simmer on the stove all day. Such fun, wandering DC without the press of crowds.
