Memorial Day 2009
George Mason doesn't seem bummed about all the hundreds of thousands of Harleys in town for Rolling Thunder this weekend. They're making lots of noise and traffic chaos but it's only for a day or two. This is a serious event for vets of several wars. Their bond with each other is clearly evident as they help each other when a bike breaks down or someone gets lost. It's quite a spectacle to see streams of them thundering across the E Street Expressway and down 23rd Street. Spouse and I wave to them from our balcony and many wave back. The weather has been perfect yesterday and today. I just hope the predicted storms hold-off until tonight so they can complete their circuit.
