I was supposed to be at ReBar Camp

For weeks I have been planning to attend the DC ReBar Camp that is going on today.  I rearranged my schedule so that it would be possible and made plans with a friend/neighbor to carpool.

The camp is actually being held in Herndon, VA not Washington, DC as advertised.  Herndon is well over an hour from my home.  I estimated in rush hour traffic it would have taken me about 2 hours to get there.  I was still ready to brave the commute.

This morning the phone rang early and it was my carpool buddy indicating that she had been looking at the traffic and she didn't think it was feasible for us to get there.  It had been raining all night and it was raining buckets at that point.  Those of you familiar with the DC area know that it is notorious for horrendous traffic.  The level of traffic difficulties at least triples when there is rain.  There were accidents all over the place and traffic was at a standstill on the beltway.  We figured it would have taken closer to 3 hours to get there and they were expecting more rain for the evening rush hour.

It just didn't seem to make sense to take on 5-6 hours worth of commuting time.  We would have gotten there very late and then had to leave very early just to make it work.

Instead, I am at my computer catching up on some website work and wishing that I was in Herndon becoming more tech savvy. 

I'll just have to sign up for the virtual camp instead and hope that the rainers who attend today will share some of what they learned.

I am third.  Settlement upheaval. End of month. So, I will be doing agent work. Of course, that really feels good compared to manager work.

you have to roll with the bunches at times.  It is hard to figure sometimes but you just have to keep on keeping on
