Sounds like my last drive to DC. I was in Virginia, and could see the buildings on the horizon at 14:00, and was still on the south part of the loop at 17:00. I was headed to Maryland, and needless to say, I missed dinner.
Sorry you got that news. I was trying to hold off my psa until after the trip, but it got rescheduled for the Uro, and I got it last night. We'll have things to comiserate about.
