    I'm planning to drive down from DC for the ribbon cutting. I plan to leave at noon, which should give me enough time to get there. Anyone else planning to go from DC?

    Crew cars are first-come-first-serve but they have two with no expected arrivals so looks like I'm good. Thanks!

    Here are the raw videos.
    I didn't run the drone during the ribbon-cutting because it's too noisy and very distracting - and the local TV station was recording with sound.

    Love those kids! Dad...Buy them a drone of their own!

    I uploaded the portion of the speeches that I captured on my cell phone. The audio is pretty low, but it can be heard. I didn't capture the ribbon cutting because we all got in the photo.

    On the NBC 29 coverage, the guy you see (in the sunglasses) in the background walking around and appearing to look down is me. While standing behind the group, I happened to notice on the ground a number of sheet metal screws, metal and plastic washers. So I was trying to pick up all that I could find. I don't know how they got there ---- I hope it wasn't some nefarious act, and perhaps it was left over from the construction phase.

    Anyway, I picked up all that I could see. But there were several cars in the stalls so I couldn't see everything.

    Most ironic moment of the ribbon cutting: Tesla executive driving off in a Prius. Wait, what?!?

    What's the best way to report SuC issues to Tesla? On stall 2A, the clip that holds the charger in the cradle is broken so the cable just hangs down. I found the cable laying on the ground when I stopped to charge there yesterday.

    Just call the normal Tesla customer service/roadside assistance at 877-798-3752 to report it.

    When I discovered it, it was after hours and the line just rang (I didn't want to choose the Roadside Assistance line because it wasn't a true emergency. I sent an email with a picture and description.
