Jon Crispin's Notebook

I-95

Posted in Automobiles, Family, Fish, Fishing, Nature, Transportation, Travel, Water, Weather by joncrispin on 21/01/2014

I was meant to be driving to DC as I am writing this, but due to the winter storm nailing the I-95 corridor, I ended up leaving last night.  I stopped just North of the Delaware Memorial Bridge, got a room for a few hours and was on the road again by 6.30 this morning.  It started snowing just after I parked in Peter’s apartment building in DC, and now at 2.15 it is really coming down.  And cold to boot.  I really wanted to make it here today as it is his 25th birthday.  We’ll get to spend the whole day together and then go out to dinner somewhere in the neighborhood this evening.

Tomorrow I am off to Tilghman to shoot Chesapeake Bay related artifacts for the Watermen’s Museum.  Originally Peter Carroll was going to be shooting video as well, but he basically had no safe way of getting here from Ithaca due to the weather.  He and I have been working on the island on and off for over 5 years now and it is such an interesting place. / The second of his films about the watermen and their families will be shown on Maryland Public Television Tuesday, 23rd April at 8.30 PM.  Here is a teaser.  And here is a link to an earlier post of mine about one aspect of the project.
