Were You Part of This Morning’s Rapture?

Only heathens need respond.

It was eerily quiet along Lee Highway this morning as I was driving my lovely wife to work. The only thing I could figure was that the rapture had come overnight and that I was not among the elect. I guess I had it coming. All the way through Rosslyn and even along the Roosevelt Bridge traffic was sparse enough for me to change lanes without slowing down. Not once did I feel compelled to do any single-fingered turn signaling.

I only hit stop-and-go traffic when I got into the District, trying to merge onto E Street, but that’s to be expected, as even an act of God could not make all those camels fit through the eye of a needle at the same time. Plus, I figure it makes sense that those who are not swept up to Heaven by the swift and merciful hand of God might as well seek refuge in an urban center such as DC.

So if you made it to Heaven, I am sure DC Metblogs would love to get a report so we can find the local angle up there. Please report as soon as you can.

    An update to the rapture issue:
    Fellow apparnet heathen Tom Bridge let me know that this is likely the beginning of the Easter weekend holiday. I guess that shows who the bigger heathen is – at least he knew that Easter was this Sunday. I had no idea.

    Lee Highway was a pain in the ass when I left the house half an hour late this morning, clearly you had the driving mojo.

    Proud heathen, here.
    It was eerily calm for during lunch: I normally bike up 14th from Thomas Circle to Columbia Heights, which is typically a rockin’ time filled with all manner of combat… but not today. Far fewer cars, pedestrians, even a distinct lack of double-parked delivery trucks on 14th.

    I was hoping it WAS rapture, for all the free goodies: wandering from house to house, finding out what Catholics eat… (what DO Catholics eat?)
