If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

“Metro announces bus service changes for Tuesday in advance of expected winter weather

Metro is fully deploying resources to respond to winter weather that could impact travel conditions tomorrow, Tuesday, February 9, 2016. Based on current forecasts, Metro is advising customers of bus service changes on Tuesday.


Metrobus will begin Tuesday on a Moderate Snow Plan which, in the interest of safety, keeps buses from operating on hilly terrain, narrow streets and other problem areas. Some bus routes do not operate under the Moderate Snow Plan, while others run with detours in effect. CLICK FOR DETAILS AND MAPS
In addition, Metrobus school trips in the District of Columbia (service to DC Public Schools and Public Charter Schools) will operate if schools are open. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I am writing to see if your readers could provide recommendations for a contractor who specializes in pocket door repairs. I live in a historic building in D.C. and one of the two large pocket doors separating my bedroom and living room has been stuck for some time. Ideally, I’m looking for someone who has experience working in older/historic buildings.”

“fight with knife at Georgia Ave Metro station on Saturday night”

“About 7PM Saturday a group of about 10 teenage girls began fighting near the corner of New Hampshire and Georgia (actually on the west side of Rock Creek Church Road). It was a fairly big incident and about a dozen people witnessed it. At one point, one of the girls was dragged into the street and the other girls began stomping her in the face. One the girls involved in the fight pulled out a butcher knife and a hammer and began wildly screaming. I called 911 and timed the police response at 6 minutes. The first police cars arrived on the scene and the girls scattered right in front of them. The girl openly wielding the knife and hammer threw them down behind the zip cars on Rock Creek Church Road, 10 feet in front of the police. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I went to the police station with a friend to make a report of the incident, but the cop unfortunately told me based on the story I’ve provided it was not sufficient (so my friend asked: what is “enough” to make a report?). Another friend of mine was disappointed with the lack of response from the cop and suggested that I reach out to spread awareness.

On Friday late evening/early Saturday morning at 3am, I was followed by a guy about 5’4″, 30-ish, Hispanic, from the intersection of Mt. Pleasant & 15th towards Harvard & 14th. At first, the guy followed by bike as I was heading down towards the direction of Irving. He tried engaging in conversation, but I ignored him as I kept walking. At one moment, the guy disappeared (between Irving & Columbia along 15th street) and occasionally I looked over my shoulder to make sure he wasn’t there. That’s when I took out my keys, along with my mace, so I didn’t have to dig for them while standing at my door. (more…)
