Open Thread II: Carmageddon Experiences

Photo: Associated Press

We got your predictions in the thread below, but as the weekend progresses feel free to let us know how/if Carmageddon is impacting your weekend. My first report is that we're relieved that the news is recharging at the moment so that we have a couple of hours without helicopters flying overhead.

Also, I got a phone call from our friend Sgt. David Krumer with the LAPD asking if I would pass on the word that the LAPD kindly requests that people not try to ride their bikes on the closed portion of the I-405. They know how to read Facebook and Midnight Ridazz guys...Enjoy the weekend, we'll be back tomorrow with coverage of the "Flight v bikes" race tomorrow.
