G8 Summit

I’m temporarily living back down in Savannah for a short while. By chance, I moved back in time for the G8 Summit, which is currently the big thing going on here in the area.

Various news sites have aggregate stories (articles with links to others on the topic), including WSAV and WTOC.Also, there are a lot of news stories about the streets being heavily patrolled with law enforcement of various types.

I personally have seen several police and military vehicles of all sorts while driving around recently. Just yesterday, there was a huge caravan of around fifteen cars, all with lights flashing, traveling in the same direction I was (at least for a while). Thankfully, I was going in the right direction, as all the other roads in every other direction were all blocked off (with lots of traffic backed up behind the barricades), and I must have seen around twenty to thirty police cars stopping the flow of traffic.

It’s interesting to note that there is even an official blog for the Savannah G8 Summit, complete with its own RSS feed.

    I heard that most natives left the area…and Bryan’s Picture in his photoalbum with the note saying that they are closed proves that.

    Found your protestors…

    Apparently Georgia was too far away, so the protestors settled for Research Triangle Park, NC.


    Crazy stuff.
