Good news, bad news.
Good news: I just received confirmation that I did get the apartment of my dreams (at this income level anyway). Ah, one bedroom heaven with 8th floor view of R street...life is good.
On the downer side: we've got the wrath of god coming to smite thee: "National Weather reports a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for all areas in the region until 10 pm. With rain, damaging winds and hail expected between 4 and 5 pm."
Holy crap, that sounds pretty bad-- be careful if you are on the road.
