    I noticed that traffic was a lot lighter coming home yesterday on my “secret” way into WS.  I am guessing that is because the kiddos are out of school for the summer.  Looks like clear sailing until the week of 9/12 when we get our bridge back.

    Was it foggy this morning? There was lots of foghorn action this morning around 5:30- 6:00am (not complaining, just curious).

      LOL. I hadn’t looked outside when I asked that; I just assumed it was supposed to be nice between yesterday’s warm sun, and the forecast for this coming weekend.
