I'm here, a little late, but here! I am excited to read your TR because I grew up in the Northern VA area so you have already started talking about places I know. Hurricane Irene sure caused a lot of traffic/vacation issues. We had an unexpectedly longer stay in Florida due to Irene and were worried our Labor Day plans in Ocean City, MD might be cancelled due to hurricane damage. Excited to see what you end up doing in Williamsburg. I always found Colonial Williamsburg fun, but I totally love history things like that. Um, and the drive to the White Mountains can be killer - since we did that this summer. I can only imagine it would feel so long after driving 6 hours to get up to MA/NH.
