I work in Downtown Portland right next to the Waterfront--where every festival that Portland puts on, is located.
Great scenery but it also makes for very clogged roads.
Add to this mix--Memorial Weekend and Glen Jackson bridge repair work that has backed up traffic for hours on a normal weekend...I will be staying at a hotel in downtown instead of enduring a grueling drive home.
I'm going to plunk my work stuff in my hotel room after work and then take Chanda into the hordes of people and Rose Festival activities.
Another Chanda opportunity!
You can see some pre-Rose Festival glimpses on my Mobile City blog:
