A scarlet (or crimson?) dawn picture featuring the scaffolding-encased U.S. Capitol dome yesterday morning, Oct. 28, 2014 in a picture by John J. Young that appeared in this entry on the Capital Weather Gang site.
This is a quick post-work update as I am not taking the computer home tonight.
I finished the two main work-related tasks I had to do this week including the Arizona BA report just now. For tonight, I was to meet Brett for dinner but it is the tie-breaking game of the World Series and it is best if we reschedule for next week, which we did. (It is basically the equivalent of me postponing a weekend trip away from D.C. in order to not want to miss a big snowstorm.)
Instead, I'll just go to No. 9 for a bit. I am actually suppose to meet Kristof there. As for tomorrow night, that will be a gym night.
Dawn yesterday with the Washington Monument and buildings along the Potomac River silhouetted in this picture take by Kevin Ambrose and posted in the same CWG entry as above.
Weather-wise, it is a cool (about 60F), variably cloudy night following a frontal passage with some light rain showers.
By the way, it reached 80F yesterday at KDCA and KBWI and 82F at KIAD. None were daily record highs. Oddly, KDMH only reached 73F. (The 84F at KMRB was a record high for the day. Unsure of the 84F at KCHO.) That *should* be the final 80F day of this season.
OK, that's all for now. I intend to update the blog late tomorrow night, or possibly on Friday (which is, by the way, Halloween).
