Removing Utility cables from the exterior of a house:

“Has anyone had experience with (or know of a good professional for) removing old utility cables and hardware from the exterior of a home? I moved into a townhouse in Petworth over the summer, and the house has accumulated a pretty unsightly collection of cables and wires along one side of the building. Some of this is connected to an unused satellite dish, but I have no idea what the bulk of it is for and don’t want to start blindly removing or altering something that might be important. Any advice would be much appreciated.”

Water walking/running at Wilson Aquatic Center:

“Hey, PoP-ers who swim at Wilson Aquatic Center: just curious, do pool-users ever do deep-water running there? I haven’t seen anything about it specifically on the DPR website, and I can get over looking like a weirdo compared to all the swimmers…but I know deep-water running has a somewhat different “flow” than lap-swimming, and when lane-sharing it would probably be awkward and not very feasible to have a runner in the lane knocking the swimmers out of whack. (I enjoy both laps and water-running, but most of the water-running I’ve done was in a small town where some relatives live and where residents have access to a gorgeous, huge pool at the local high school that hardly anyone seems to use, so I always had a lane to myself. But I know from experience at basically every other pool that getting a lane to oneself is a luxury, and next to impossible during peak times at the average pool.)”
