|The great room, with Leo guarding it.|
Experienced rush-hour traffic for the first time today after Courtney picked me up from work. We got past the Maryland state line in no time at all (20 minutes at most), but then had to wait seven cycles to get through the intersection of Beach Drive and East-West Highway because of the traffic stopped at Jones Branch. Very poorly designed intersection... especially because it took us at least 20 minutes to get through there, whereas it'd probably have taken ten just to park and walk to the house. Oh well. More news tomorrow, as we meet with the Montgomery County Planners and the architect, but let's see what Courtney has to say about her evening tour. Courtney?
