  • Washington Gas has also been working on a gas leak at Sherman and Lamont since 1 o’clock this afternoon. Coincidence?

  • the business has really been brisk at Chipotle.

  • The Sherman and Lamont fix is still ongoing, I think. I was thankful that the jack-hammering didn’t go too late last night, but it looks like they had to tear up a significant chunk of the street (and evacuate folks from at least one house). Funny that there would be a major issue blocks away, too.
