After holding him over GVE, he elected to go to BWI, then changed to RIC. 

I LOVE THUNDERSTORMS!!

Marc, welcome to the fourm  :-D I see you have the SWANN sector in your sig. I didnt know you were in Area 8. Speaking of the thunderstorms, Philly got a break and were able to get some guys in with no windshear. As far as departures, no luck and DD's are pushing to 105 minutes (What else is new in Philly?)

I am on the other side of DC, Area 1 (Northern VA to PSK and GSO).  We are at least 3 sectors back from you on the PHL arrivals.     I think SWANN is 134.5, but I am not quite sure.

Thats odd, I heard 32.52 is in Area 8 and I also heard that it's sector name use to be DQO and then was changed to SWANN. Guess someone told me some bad info.

More than likely you are correct, I changed the profile...

I guess my head was still spinning from holding aircraft when I first typed it up. :|

Sorry to resurrect this from the graveyard, but SWANN and DQO are two different sectors that are sometimes combined.
