Anyway, with the hurricane threatening the DC area, they actually ended up shutting down the government on Thursday and Friday. I think they did that because they had to shut down Metro, because of the winds. I loved it. I still went to my class, but since there was so little traffic, what had been a 1.5 hour ride became a 40 minute ride. I think they should shut to government down more often.
My parents lost power Thursday night. It rained a bit, but mostly it was wind that we saw. The power was out until Saturday morning. It really wasn't too big a deal. Only about half of the students showed up for Friday's class, and we ended up having a great class.
Anyway, that's my hurricane post.
