Traffic levels are lighter than normal for some reason today, and that is making for a delightful drive in most places.

We've had few accidents and only a handful of stalled vehicle to deal with so far.

One problem area is on Central Avenue at 37th Avenue in Columbia Heights. A motorist hit a gas pump at Bobby and Steve's and fuel spilled out onto Central. The intersection has been closed since just before  7 a.m.
