People are Awesome – Dispatch During the Storm edition

“Dear PoPville,

File this under “People are Awesome” stories. Me and the fam were caught in the storm tonight while driving in Adams Morgan. On Mozart Place, about 50 feet before the intersection with Columbia Road, a chain link construction fence blew over, falling over our car in a wave. It was jarring but we weren’t in danger. The storm was a rager so we figured we’d just wait it out and push the fence back up when things calmed down.

Within a couple minutes,

a guy on a bike stopped to ask if we were ok. I was like “yes, thanks. Go take care of yourself!” After another minute, another guy came sprinting from the Silva apartments, getting soaked, to ask if we were ok. The wind must have been 50mph at this point. And then, a few minutes later, two guys came up and lifted the fence – joined by the guy again from the Silva – so we could drive on.

Hats off to these guys. It’s great to know good folks like these are all around us. I hope to pass it on.”
