Delayed, maintenance issues.

American Airlines handled it well:  new aircraft flown in; pre-board, two carts of complimentary sandwiches, snacks and drinks; in flight, first round on the house.

Arrival past midnight.

Antidote:  Billy Martin's Tavern.  Nearby, ambient, good libations and, most important, open till 1:30 a.m.

Outside:  Warm and sultry, a hint of thunderstorms to come.

I always liked Washington.  Still do.
