Fallen tree caused by the June 30 storm that hit the East Coast

Fairfax, Virginia - If you were anywhere around the DC Metro area last night, odds are you've been spending a few hours without power. And if you're from my neck of the woods ... odds are you're still without.

At it's highpoint, more than two million PEPCO, Dominion and BGE Power company customers were without the desired commodity of power. In a night filled with winds, rain and a dazzling display of lightning those of us here at the NRA battened down the hatches and waited for the whirlwind to pass.

As fate would have it, power to NRA Headquarters was restored earlier in the day ... which is why I'm able to post this report. And although the power outage caused a few disruptions, rumor is that tonight's Youth Education Summit Awards Banquet will go on without a hitch.

Trees throughout the area hit the ground and brought down power lines during the June 29th storm

So as you make your way through the DC Metro area, judiciously avoiding fallen debris, orange cones and power gaps along the way, do so with care. There will be plenty of time to hit the range tomorrow.
