If you blinked, you might have missed my two appearances last week on FOX 5 WTTG to discuss transportation issues in in Washington, D.C.

Aside from the overabundance of snow in D.C. in Q1, 2014 has been a great ride so far. If you’re looking for me on a day-to-day basis, check out InTheCapital, where I stepped on as managing editor in January. It’s a daily news site for info about tech, innovation, politics, education and lifestyle goings on in Washington.

As always, you can find me on Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Facebook as well.

The highlight of this weekend so far was definitely watching the launch of NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE). Here’s what it looked like over the U.S. Capitol Friday night as it was headed to the moon.

We caught a boat down to Alexandria on Friday. I looked up at the Kennedy Center balcony during the ride and found it hard to believe that it hasn’t even been five months since we were standing up there. It’s been a long, packed summer.
