The bus driver this morning took an unexpected turn. When people jumped up to make sure they were on the right bus, the driver calmly told them it was a new route. I've since called the local transit authority and been told that if it is a new route (and there are several) they don't know about it.

Helpful.

Anyway, I was 20 minutes late for work (the bus was late in addition to, or maybe because of, the driver's penchant for improvisation), but it was a delightfully sunny morning, and I got a nice view:





Apologies to people who follow me on twitter, to whom this is likely old news.

Yes! Peak is April 2-9, I believe. The Cherry Blossom Festival started this weekend.

O wow... I've only been to that once. We were supposed to go down to Maryland this weekend but we called it off. (No sense in spending $600 or more for a weekend trip to tour a college Sarah doesn't want to attend.) But we were going to make a detour through DC to see the cherry trees.

Whine.

Isn't a wrong turn on a bus how "Speed" started?

Wow! Your grass is green, and look at those cherry trees! I've never been to DC for the cherry blossoms - someday, I'd like to go.

it's a great time to be here. the best is when the trees are in bloom and the wind picks up, carrying the blooms off the branches and snowing pink and white.
