Music to my ears
From the Washington Post's Thanksgiving travel update:
"Roads are expected to be just as congested as the skies, with an estimated 578,000 motorists heading out of the Washington area for Thanksgiving. Most of them will leave today, travel experts said. "
That's almost the entire population of DC proper fleeing this area. The great thing about DC is that nobody is from here, and nobody's family wants to come here for the holidays. And those that do stay in town will probably spend the weekend at the shopping malls out in the 'burbs. So if you're lucky enough to stick around, it's like the college campus in summer time. No pesky humans clogging up my sidewalks and streets. Just me and the immigrant community who could care less about this holiday.
