The afternoon of September 11, 2014, was not the first time during the week that there had been a major traffic jam in Bloomingdale. But it was the first time in months (an event that happens once or twice a year) that a Presidential motorcade traveled on North Capitol, causing a traffic snarl that had neighbors tweeting and emailing to determine the cause.
While the President and Mrs. Obama did not visit Bloomingdale, they did visit a school in nearby Edgewood (
"President Obama and Michelle Obama went to the Inspired Teaching School public charter school on Thursday, doing public service as part of September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance."
"It's probably a safe guess that discussion continued inside the motorcade on the way home to the White House Thursday evening. But there's no pool reporter inside the presidential limo, so we'll never know."

The Inspired Teaching School is currently located at:
Beginning in August 2014, we will move to our new location at the Shaed School.
