    Two days ago I blogged on how the bike path along the Patuxent River was left a mess from the contractors working on the sewer system.  The picture below was what it looked like.

    Today I ran by and saw that the path system had been substantially cleared of the mud.  To whoever addressed this issue a big thank you from the users of this path!
