Presidential Presence

This week the Seattle Metro area decided to see how the population would react to a round-the-clock, round the week major restriction of a major highway.

The population responded admirably. They suggest that schedule changes and telecommuting are making a difference, but I think a lot of people just went on vacation. To be truthful, the traffic has been extremely light most of the time – and I have not seen or experienced any major delays.

So today they decided to push this one step further.
And Obama came to town.

This is what a presidential highway looks like.

Emptiness

Emptiness

And this is the other side of the coin.

Not empty, and completely stopped

Not empty, and completely stopped

We missed seeing the actual motorcade by about 2 minutes.
