About that Wind Last Night?

Holy moly. Thanks to Dan for sending the shot above: “an awning blew off a roof somewhere, landed here on 20TH and O ST NW. Debris everywhere, hit the white SUV across the street. Looks like it smashed the windows of the vacant Ping Pong Dim Sum as well.”

Jonathan Padget snaps the photo below and writes: “Apparently Bristol House lost a rooftop structure. Old Ping Pong Dim Sum damaged, along with vehicle nearby.”


  • Also: “PEPCO reports only 7000 customers remain affected by the scattered power outages in the District of Columbia. Restoration time is 6 – 8 hours.”

      Was really surprised I didn’t lose power (Forest Hills). The lights sure flickered quite a bit and was totally expecting to see fallen trees this morning, but it was surprisingly clear.

      Powers out up in Petworth :-/

        Bummer. What I could have used was power outage in the Farragut North area… I would have LOVED a “offices closed due to power outage” day, since apparently we aren’t getting snow days this winter.

        • Agreed! My office is up in Rockville and I was hoping for a power-outage day off!

          During my commute, I saw a HUGE tree down closing Dale Drive both ways near Georgia Ave — it missed someone’s home by no more than a foot, very lucky!

    Wow, I guess I don’t feel so bad about losing our cardinal wind sock last night.

    Further proof those cabi bikes are tanks!

    Wow! And it’s still going … partial power outage in Manor Park (and no Xfinity internet :-/ ~ not sure if that’s related though)

    I slept right through this. Thanks Ambien!!

    Wind managed to open our recycling can, lift up a large empty box, and blow it 5 blocks away (found it on the way to the metro this morning). We had gusts close to 60mph.

  • Peeled our porch roof right off. Half the membrane ended up on our neighbor’s roof.
