No ride in means no ride home. I made the right choice- it looked downright dastardly out there. Dangerous, too. I made the most of it by grabbing a beer with a colleague after work and then dropping him off at the Metro. I thought that I could really multi-task by picking up my wife from work in Arlington, but I couldn't quite coordinate it. Driving in Arlington isn't very fun, but in this case, it was probably better than trying to bike in this wind.
