5 Things, Mar. 2: Brief Lull; Summer Dreaming

Lull: After the last 48 hours, a little sun is welcome — and, it turns out, about what we're expecting, according to the JohnstonPatch Weatherbug page. Another batch of rain and sleet is expected later today into tonight. Temps floating around 30.

Dreaming: If you're already thinking more of sand and surf than of milk and bread, the Rhode Island Convention Center is scheduled to open the RV and Camping Show today at 1 p.m. Click here to order tickets [account required].

Driving: Down the road or across the state, find potential traffic trouble spots on your route — as well as the cheapest gas near you — on the JohnstonPatch Traffic & Gas page.

Lo-IQ: It's kind of a shame we launched OMG PD last spring, instead of last March — our police log from March 2, 2011 had a doozie... Follow the dots:

  • Police announced the arrests of three suspects on a Feb. 24 drug bust at 2 1/2 Earl St. (Note that address — it's important later.)
  • The cops also reported that the day after the drug bust at 2 1/2 Earl St., four more suspects were picked up when they tried to break into the apartment.
  • They didn't have an explanation for why they were there. Can you think of a clever one? Post a comment below.
