Morning Links: Bad Weather in Alexandria Edition

Storm Cloud's Silver Lining

For our Morning Links, we scanned the local papers, blogs, and news websites for a roundup of news and opinion from Alexandria, Virginia and around the area.

In the News:

Has May 2016 been the WORST month for weather in the Washington, DC area? May 2016 has not delivered the magnificent days the month is known for. (CWG)

Maestro Kim Allen Kluge bids ‘To be continued’ at the Alexandria Symphony He refused to say goodbye. Although it was his final concert as music director of the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra, Maestro Kim Allen Kluge preferred to tell well-wishers “To be continued.” (Alexandria Gazette)

Bike to Work Day 2016 may have special value this year Looking for a new way to commute during the Metro maintenance disruptions? (Dr. Gridlock)

Local taxi and ride-hailing companies are making plans to fill in the gap during the upcoming Metrorail shutdowns SafeTrack, Metro’s year-long rebuilding plan, will inconvenience thousands of riders, with segments of some lines shut down for days at a time, late-night service suspended and extended delays. But where riders foresee pain — with memories of the one-day shutdown in March still fresh — transportation companies see opportunity. (WaPo)

Surviving rainy days in the Alexandria area Oh thank God, it’s raining out – AGAIN! I was beginning to get worried that the puddles were close to drying up. Who doesn’t love a gorgeously overcast day, with beautiful gray clouds, and no thought of sunlight?  The DC weather has given us a true taste of a Twilight vampire’s dream scenario and has me wondering if the skies are still blue.
