Wow, this is making the Dec. blizzard look like a little sprinkling. Couple of overnight items. First from DC:
“Residents are reminded to phone 311 to report any downed trees. Please provide a specific address including building number and street name, if available, so crews can quickly identify the location. DDOT’s Urban Forestry crews are cutting and moving fallen trees to keep roadways open. Additional clean up and removal of debris will commence after the storm ends.
Some downed power lines have also been reported. Pepco crews are responding. Residents are reminded to not approach or touch downed lines and to report any incidents immediately. Call 911 for any live wires or Pepco’s emergency number at 1-877-PEPCO-62″
Second, in addition to a snowball fight in Meridian Hill at 2pm, I’m also hearing there is one at noon at 14th and U and another one at 2pm at Dupont Circle. And also at 2pm in Lincoln Park for Capitol Hill folks (thanks Rukasu). If anyone goes take some photos for me, please!
Submit your photos via email or to the PoPville flickr pool here.
And finally you can get Snowpocalypse the drink from Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe:
“In case your readers want info on restaurants and other businesses that will be open during the storm, I wanted to tell you that Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe (1517 Connecticut Ave, NW) will be open regular hours (24 hrs. Fri & Sat., & ’til late Sun.-Thurs.). We will be serving a special drink: The Snowpocalypse: Bailey’s Irish Cream, Godiva Chocolate liqueur & Peppermint Schnapps in hot chocolate.”
