Good morning, RVA! It’s 35 °F and rainy. Seems suboptimal, but temperatures are above freezing, so your morning commute should be wet, not icy. That’s something, right? However, VDOT–perpetual realists that they are–does still caution you to remain vigilant on your drive in.

Expect the rain to continue, on and off, for nearly the entire day, tapering off tonight.

Look At This: Demolished

This NPR piece on the public housing projects of Chicago is a great experiment in using a user interface to help tell a story.

In the early ’90s, when Patricia Evans started documenting public housing, she had already established herself as a successful urban photographer. She had seen a lot while working in cities around the world. But when she settled in Chicago, she recalls, she was surprised by what she saw in that major American city: a place the rest of the city had seemingly abandoned.
