Two weeks worth of AARs in this report. Last week got away from me.
WEEK 313, JANUARY 21,2012
God looked down upon us this Saturday. The night before a little over an inch of snow fell. Streets were predicted to be icy and as the morning wore on, an icy cold rain was to continue. But as I said, God was pleased with our support of the troops and the rain basically stopped. The roads were just wet and the shopping center had shoveled the corner.
With the anticipated rain, we only put up the flanking flags. Plus with the snow cover, we knew we would not find the rebar holes for the banner supports.
Patriots this week are: Legionnaire Halsey (USMC - Korea), Lurker Bill, Fraxinus,, [Mrs] T and myself.
BELOW: The highlight of the morning was Lurker Bills sound system. A small throw rug placed over the snow and we were up n running.

WEEK 314, JANUARY 28,2012
A week makes a big difference. While several weeks ago it was bitter cold, December, 2011 and this January will be in the top 10 warmest months, at least in the DC area. Weather this Saturday on the corner was sunny and in the upper 40s. All flags and banners were up.
9 Patriots this week are: Legionnaire Carl (Army - Vietnam), Lurkers Bill n Jim, Fraxinus, GunsAreOK, iMacMan, Sensei Ern, [Mrs] T and myself.
An excellent showing of Freepers, thanks to them all.

BELOW LEFT: Legionnaire Carl
BELOW: Some of our supporters. The semi is a regular supporter, waving to us and blowing his air horn through the intersection.
BELOW LEFT: And our distractors. One moonbat holds a hands Off Iran. I really need to get our Israeli support sign back up. All our new flags took up all the space. And if I have time, I need to make up a sign that says IRAN - Hands Off Israel.
If you live in northern VA and want a short cut to Olney See Post 39 Here. It's an easy 20 minute drive from the American Legion Bridge.
A special Thanks to a FReeper FRiend for enhancing the original plain type directions.

Double your pleasure this week.
Triple your pleasure with a GIANTS win over New England
Just proud of all of you. Keep it up.
You guys are the best! Thanks to you all for your incredible dedication.
A POX on you for saying that!!!!
Hooray for the FREEPERS!
Nice gang out there last weekend. Thank You!
Thanks for braving the snow and being at your corner!
Miss you all, but not the weather.
Go Big Blue!!!
RL - TBP likes my “triple pleasure” in their Post 8.
Either way the weather will be cool enough that [Mrs] T and I will be watching in front of the fire.
Thank you all for your kudos for the Olney patriots.
Got onto the AAR this morning and was surprised at the number of over night responses.
Bah! Heh, going out to Indianapolis with Veeram’s cousin...don’t have tickets, but gonna party!
Good job, too. You guys have my respect for standing in that cold, wet Maryland winter weather. There always seems to be one Moonbat...at least one who shows up. Have they ever failed to show at all?
Yea, the “Quackers” do not show on real cold days or real hot days. In July and August the sun just beats down on their corner, and the sun is in their faces. That is one reason they went to the 10:30AM time. Originally they started at 11:30.
Then the “Swed” started showing up. He was there in early 2006 but disappeared, then started showing up this year.
PS - enjoy the weekend as the GIANTS win the Superbowl.
