As everyone was heading south on I-95 to Washington D.C., to be a part of the inauguration, I was going the opposite direction to Baltimore.
There was something eerie driving through to my appointment with so little traffic. The clinic waiting room was stranger yet with so many empty seats.
I go several times a year and it's normal to spend the whole morning or afternoon sitting in one waiting area after another, never had such a short wait before.
A sure sign that almost all of Baltimore had emptied out to the District of Columbia. Mind you, I'd love to have been right there with them watching the swearing in!
