Arlington Alert Slightly Better Than Alert DC

I posted yesterday about the totally idiotic Alert DC email about the inauguration that acted like the entire city lives under a rock. Arlington’s Alert came into my mail today, and I quote:

“Arlington is proud to be an important part of the Presidential Inauguration and celebrations. Arlington is expecting record crowds during the entire inaugural weekend January 17-20. Crowds and events during this weekend will affect all residents. To prepare for this event, pretend a hurricane is coming during that weekend and expect large crowds, congestion, traffic and many delays. Getting around will be difficult at best so a common sense approach will be important. Be informed, make a plan, be prepared.”

What Arlington Alert really means to say: It’ll Barack you like a hurricane.
