The windy city, at least for tonight

I hope Max will forgive me for treading on his usual domain, but when searching for an image on flickr to join my commenting on the gales outside I came across this shot. I expect that with gusts up to fifty mph we may see some shots tomorrow that look more like this, but I loved this shot from Aaron Edwards of a rippling flag around our monument.

A good friend of mine, when visiting DC, is always tickled by the sight of the Capitol dome. To her that’s the quintessential DC image. For me it’s the Washington Monument, and it’s hard for me not to smile when I catch sight of it, however distantly. Is there any one sight that, for you, is the epitome of DC?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
