We went to Rockville today to meet up with some of the staff there - I had a great day and found out a few things I didn't know.
The journey home however was a nightmare! Just as we were leaving a storm came in and made what is usually bad traffic (like the M25) on the Washington DC beltway - worse!
It took 2 hours to do a 45 minute journey - then when we were 3 miles from home, we got stuck again - and it took a further hour to go that last little bit.
The lightning show was spectacular though - we don't get it like that in the UK often and it was every few minutes and just lit up and streaked across the sky. Amazing.
Pat had dinner waiting (thank you for keeping it hot for us!) and I had to pee so bad, but we made it home and overall it was worth it.
