To Pop smoke: Military slang for leaving, as in popping a smoke grenade to cover the action of your egress from an area.
By the time you read this I will probably be somewhere on Interstate 70 East of Columbus getting ready to cross into West Virginia.
Headed to the Washington DC area starting today for the weekend to have a memorial service for my Great-Aunt Elinor, who recently passed. I am going to try and do a little sight seeing in DC while we are there on Sunday. I am suspecting that much of it may be shut down not only due to the earthquake/hurricane thing, but that some areas will be cordoned off so that security teams can start to sweep them prior to next weekends 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Also going to try and hook up with a friend from deployment and her husband (who was also on our deployment) on the way back.
Maybe a brief post from the iPhone, maybe not. Regular posting to resume next week.
Have a safe and happy Labor day weekend!
