DC weather: Trade-off
I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again. I have no problem walking through a torrential downpour if we get a good payoff as a result. Yesterday afternoon was downright nasty, and me like a fool just had to blog about Ross Perot instead of getting the hell out of the office.
It didn’t feel too bad when I left work, there were some droplets, but they felt cooling and nice. Plus they let up by the time I reached the metro station entrance, so I was feeling pretty ok about it. I didn’t see anyone soaked getting on the train on the stops home, so I figured I was out of the woods.
Then we pulled into Columbia Heights and as I was approaching the escalator, I could hear it, even through my music. And I could see people, even with umbrellas, looking soaked and I knew I was in for it. I hadn’t brought my office “backup” umbrella because it’s a freebie and while it looks great, it would fold in a stiff breeze, let alone this:
However this morning is a lovely 60s and it might get up to 80 today. I can definitely live with that.
