BETHESDA, Md. -- Though Congressional CC and the AT&T National were closed to spectators on Saturday, thousands were trying to go about their usual weekend business in the wake of a hurricane-like storm that ripped through the D.C. are on Friday night.
Downed trees, large limbs and power lines forced officials to close stretches of many roads, including important thoroughfares like Connecticut Ave. Traveling motorists had to ride the wrong way on some roads to get around closed stretches.
In Montgomery County, more than half of the traffic signals were out because of the storm, effectively turning them into multi-way stops.
