Rainy day in DC

We didn't get the wintry mix today which was a relief.  I take the metro to work but my wife has to drive a bit of the beltway on her commute, so I'm very glad there wasn't any icy road buffoonery going on.  I got a good run in during lunch along the Potomac.  I ran North along the Mt Vernon Trail past Roosevelt Island a ways and back.  It rained steadily and was a bit cool at 34 deg F.  I'm pleased to report my new Mountain Hardware jacket performed perfectly and kept my core warm and dry.  I should put together a "stuff I use and believe in" list and put it in a widget; this jacket would certainly be on the list.
