14th and H Street, NW

Update 10:03am: “It was partially reopened last I checked. Unofficial word (rumor?) is there was a suspicious package or vehicle.”

From Chief of Communications for the United States Secret Service:

“Officers are examining a vehicle in the area of 14th and H Streets NW. There are precautionary traffic implications and closures in the area as crews respond.

Vehicle has been cleared by @DCPoliceDept. Thank you MPD and US Park Police for the assistance. @usparkpolicepio”

“Dear PoPville,

Something curious going on around 14th and H. Secret Service has the nearby blocks completely sealed off to pedestrians and vehicles. No word on why. Traffic mess down here”

RA Olivieri writes: “14 street in DC closed not far from White House with Secret Service agent and police all around. No idea what is going on. I heard a comment that a car was abandoned near 14 but I have no more details.”

From AlertDC:

“MPD reports the police activity has concluded and the following roadways have been reopened to traffic:

– 700 block of 13th Street, NW, between H and G Streets
– 700 block of 15th Street, NW, between H and G Streets
– 1400 block of H Street, NW, between 13th and 15th Streets

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
