Has anyone been out on the Point in the last day or so? I'd like to head out for a run if possible at lunchtime and was wondering if it would just be a frustrating waste of time. Thanks.

I ran there on Sunday. Lots of runners and even a few bikers out. It's clear from the Golf Course parking lot around along the VA side of Ohio Drive. I had tried to run entire loop, but encountered a 30 foot snow pile at the very end. I didn't see a way around. Other than that, it's a good option for clear and dry running.

I was down there this morning (Sat) and the loop is clear.

Awesome! Now if I just had a convenient way to get there from Virginia. Is the 14th St. Bridge sidewalk cleared yet? If not, I guess I could take Metro across the river and then ride.

Afava, it's clear? Seriously? Did you happen to notice what the south parking lot looked like?

I did 30 miles down there yesterday. All short loops. Real exciting. Loved the wind on the back side. <rolling eyes>

The south parking lot is evidently where dump trucks emptied their snow. But the loop is open.
