The Governor Harry W. Nice Bridge is scary. It’s about 2 miles long, has two narrow lanes and no shoulders. Concrete barriers line the bridge to stop a vehicle from plummeting over the side. And the bridge is steep. The Bridge opened in 1940 and carries a lot of traffic across the Potomac River between southern Maryland and King George, Virginia. About a week ago I got stuck at the top of the bridge for repair work. And it was scary — so I had to do something to entertain myself so panic wouldn’t set in. That’s when I yanked out the ‘ole iPhone and started taking pictures of PEPCO’s Morgantown Generating Station on the Maryland side. If nothing else, that damn bridge has a view of the Power Plant.
