“@PoPville idea for Friday Q: if you had the $, which building in DC would you most like to live in?”
We can make it a two parter – rental and/or condo building. Personally I’m pretty jealous of the new Atlantic project buildings going up by the 9:30 club. Though I’d also be pretty happy in one of those buildings in Navy Yard by Yards Park. And in terms of older buildings I have a soft spot for the Cairo in Dupont and the Dresden in Kalorama. What about you guys?
“Metrobus service to be suspended at 9 p.m. due to expected conditions
MetroAccess to remain suspended Friday morning
In the interest of safety, all Metrobus service (all routes, all lines) will be suspended at 9 p.m. today due to expected hazardous road conditions. The current weather forecast calls for temperatures to drop significantly over the next several hours to an expected low of 10 degrees tonight. This has the potential to cause extremely hazardous, icy conditions on the roads.
Any bus trip that is scheduled to begin prior to 9 p.m. will operate to the end of the line. Any trip that originates at or after 9 p.m. will be cancelled.
Metrobus service is expected resume at 4 a.m. Friday on a Moderate Snow Plan, which keeps buses from operating on hilly terrain, narrow streets and other problem areas. Some routes are suspended under the Moderate Snow Plan, while others operate on detours. CLICK FOR DETAILS AND MAPS“

From a press release:
“A film by Mark Krenzien; narrated by Star Trek’s Patrick Stewart
JOURNEY TO SPACE 3D opens Friday, March 6 at the Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater
NASA’s next era will be its greatest yet. That is the clear “roadmap” painted by Journey To Space. The film absolutely annihilates the perception that the space program died with the end of the Space Shuttle Program by showcasing the exciting plans NASA and the space community are working on, and the challenges they must overcome to carry out audacious missions such as landing astronauts on Mars and capturing asteroids. The film puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle program and its intrepid space pioneers. It uses the most spectacular space footage – including unique views of Earth and operations in space.
By using extensive interviews with astronauts Chris Ferguson (Commander of the final shuttle mission) and Serena Aunon (a new astronaut chosen for future flights), Journey To Space gives a sweeping overview of past space accomplishments, current activities and future plans.
Journey To Space puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle program and its intrepid space pioneers. It uses the most spectacular space footage – including unique views of Earth and operations in space – such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. The International Space Station will continue operating in space until 2024, and the film shows how it is building a foundation for the next giant leaps into space.
Runtime: 43 minutes
