    Walking and biking is going great but unintentionally saving all the one-time research actions for later!

    Getting back to bike commuting has been nice. Noticed heavier traffic patterns on the bridges during typical rush-hour periods. Still way less than pre-COVID, but certainly increasing. Car Traffic is still very low downtown -- and by proxy -- bike safety is way up compared to pre-COVID.

    Commute thru downtown to childcare. Still thoroughly enjoying the less car traffic. Feels like 2007.  The cherry blossoms are nearly done blooming on the waterfront!
