Cate, thanks for posting road closings at the top of the daily e-mail. Other than Marathon day, It's too easy to forget these races and get stuck in your car making a loop around town, just trying to get home!

I know that's the worst and there's so many of them during the summer. I'll try to keep the traffic updates in the newsletter from now on since its helpful. Brace yourself for the Fourth!
