Newly appointed BrendanLoy.com Washington Bureau Chief Dane Lindberg provides us with the following report:
Short update from the Washington DC area. . . We have no power. . . I will have to keep this short (I’m not sure how many days the batteries on my laptop will need to last). It was quite blustery last night, and there is significant damage to power lines and trees. And unlike Brendan I could not go into work today. . . something about Old Town Alexandria being flooded (10 feet above the river; I’ll [send] Brendan a picture some time soon) and most of the GW parkway being shut down. Judging by the damage to power polls and the like I have a feeling that we will be without power in this area fro quite some time. That’s all for now. . . Time to shut down the computer for tomorrow’s ten minutes :)
Thanks for the update, Dane!
