  • Used the car heater on my drive home from work this morning for the first time since I can't remember.

I think it might’ve scared her at some point. About 15 minutes later I checked again and she was fully in her bed again. It was pretty funny to see.
      My daughter could fall asleep in any position. She would sleep on stairs looking like a slinky. She was stable enough that our cats would sleep under her with no feeling of risk.

      • My entire drive home the temp on my car dashboard read triple digits...3 hours later if it's still above 90.

          • Ran into a storm on I-90 last night northwest of Chi which was as wet and windy as any I have driven through in a long time. Just about all the semis had pulled over; SRO under the overpasses. Only a scattered number of idiots like me wading through wind and rain at about 30 mph. It was late, and I was tired, but it's a little like big storms coming in at our lake property. Our dock faces northwest, and there's something about being out on it when they come crashing in.

            Finally got the car washed too.

              • OPM just told everybody in the DC area to go home.

                They didn't give them permission. They told them, get out.

                      Good question. At least nobody is coming into the city for commercial purposes. The national monuments and museums are closed. So the Metros will be only workers, like in the winter; that helps.

                        • Actually, there was a couple counties just north of the Maryland-PA border that had a pretty spicy radar return. Curious to see the damage there. Lots of violent rotation.

                          Edit: And another spicy one exactly between baltimore and DC>

                          Edit 2: An almost certain tornado near Fredricksburg. That's a nasty looking velocity signature.

                          • This is a no ****ing around storm. Radar indicated hail of up to 5.3" (among what I saw) and a radar return of 74 dBZ. Crazy.

                                I was stuck on 94 for it. Parts of the highway were flooded out. Where Dale St. entrance ramp meets 94 eastbound, my car almost instantly slowed by 20mph.
