Snow and More Snow Doesn't deter the DC Chapter - Walter Reed, Week 252
February 12, 2010 | Kburi

Posted on 02/15/2010 6:49:42 AM PST by kburi

%20Week 252, February 12, 2010 – Two major snowfalls and over 30 inches of snow fell since beginning last Friday. It’s become a “big nuisance” but not big enough to prevent the DC Chapter to stand tall for the 252nd consecutive Friday night at the front gates of Walter Reed.

FRONT GATE NOTES

Mr and Mrs Trooprally arrived first and Trooprally was able to dig "standing holes" in the white stuff.

Although the streets were passable, one of the 3 lanes was still partially covered meaning we could safely stand in a "standing hole" to hold signs or flags. Trooprally is always ready to provide a solution to natures' little obstacles.

The snow was over, but traffic nightmares snarled traffic causing all of us long commutes to Walter Reed.

The evening was marked by three large ambulances lights blazing and sirens blaring, rolling through the front gates. Traffic volume lighter than normal, but still a lot of support from drivers honking and waving.

There was no bus tonight.

There were 3 moonbats. We initially thought there were 4, but one was apparently not a moonbat, but someone who had troubles, namely too much to drink.

In any event, the moonbats called 911, and soon a hook and ladder fire truck, two police cars and an ambulance showed up down the block and finally took the poor soul away.

The moonbats left before 9 pm tonight.

Thanks for writing another great AAR. You picked some good pics to show.

The drunk guy was still “walking” when I saw him. He must have been in bad shape down at the moonbats position.

And the moonbats couldn’t park on Georgia Avenue since it was an emergency route, I think Bruce parked at the McDonalds. He walked by to get his car and drove back by about 5 minutes later.

I told him he could have parked in the church lot with us. Told him we would just take down his license plate number. I don’t think he thought that was very funny.

I still remember the weekend you guys stole a march on the Wackos and applied for the corner permit before they could renew it.

You guys are AMAZING!

Veterans who stayed at Walter Reed during these years will consider it an honor that you were outside as daily reminders that they were not forgotten.

Well thank you for the DC Chapter patriots, but you have attended enough rallies at WR to pat yourself on the back.

Great work. Ole Rong got out of town just in time on Friday afternoon thanks to AA rescheduling to avoid the snow. Where did he go? Wolf Creek Mountain where they have had over 300 inches of snow going down hill. They know how to handle snow out there. Way to go all. Mrs Trooprally too.

Ya, Ya, Ya, they know how to handle the snow - they make money off it by leaving it in place and charging you to ski down it. :-))

It was good to see you back this past Friday.
