A Charlottesville Scare

I awoke this morning to learn that a 20-mile stretch of highway between Charlottesville and Waynesboro is closed owing to a string of shootings overnight.  Apparently four vehicles were shot at resulting in at least two injuries.  My school is on a 2-hour delay and we are currently in lock down mode.  Let’s hope this is not a repeat of the D.C. shootings of five years ago.

Update: As of 9:30 we are closed for the day.  I guess the administration doesn’t want to take any chances given that there have not been any arrests.
