Matt1: And you two as well, thnx16:26

MIke n Rachel in DC: Warm and rainy, but very festive (as always)16:26

Matt1: Fireworks pretty good?16:27

MIke n Rachel in DC: Fireworks everywhere…we could see the “big” fireworks from our porch looking downtown and three other displays out in Maryland!16:27

Matt1: Cool!16:27

MIke n Rachel in DC: Plus fireworks are LEGAL in DC, so we had non-stop stuff in the neighborhood too16:28

Matt1: We stayed in DC for New Years Eve one year…..only to learn there were NO fireworks in DC, lol16:28

MIke n Rachel in DC: Not on New Years. :(16:29

Matt1: Got to see VP heading to the Hill w/ motorcade for Gov’t shotdaown, from hotel16:29

Matt1: I should have checked NYE before booking in DC, lol16:29

MIke n Rachel in DC: Nice. Downtown is always crawling with three things: 1. Politicians 2. Lobbyists and 3. Tourists16:30

MIke n Rachel in DC: July 4 is always a great time to visit, obviously16:30

MIke n Rachel in DC: But the weather is the best in October/November if you just want to check out monuments, etc.16:31

Matt1: #3 here….We were told if we looked closely, we may see some in Arlington…..more exciting seeing motorcade16:31

MIke n Rachel in DC: RE #3. You are a wise man. 🙂 16:31

Matt1: I worked in DC for years, love the history and really nice over X-Mas16:32

MIke n Rachel in DC: My doctor and dentist are on 18th St. near the WH, so I have plenty of chances to see #1 and 2.16:32
