From the Road

West Gate K-8 School from Port Saint Lucie, FL was in DC this week when the Feeble “Winter Storm Saturn” blew in. I rearranged the tour to do most of the outside tours the day before the snowfall. When the snow arrived, all the government buildings closed and a lot of businesses followed suit. Everything that we wanted to do remained open and without all the government employee’s at work “we owned that town”.  After meeting with their congressman we were escorted from the Longworth Building through the Representative tunnel to the Capitol Building. 

On our tour of the Capitol Building they chanced to see Speaker Boehner and he was gracious enough to stop and talk with the students in the Old House Chambers.

They even had  time for a good old snowball fight. It was a great tour with a bunch of great students and chaperones. It’s all good.
