  • Well, that would certainly explain all the MPD I just saw clearing out. I probably would have heard it if I hadn’t been in the gym.

  • Any explanation yet as to why and how this happened? Are we sitting on some secret, dormant volcano?

  • When this happened a few weeks ago on Park, I talked to the Pepco guys who came out to investigate. They blamed it on a bad wiring job from one of their subcontractors who hooked up power to a home after renovations.

    We also had 3 covers come unseated. Hopefully they get their act together.
