Update: OP has called 911.

“The police have come and gone. They said that it definitely was an old projectile. A specialist came and x-rayed it to see if there was anything inside the pipe, but it was empty and not live. So, thank goodness that all is well and safe! Thanks to you and everyone who commented!

Unfortunately, I don’t have any insight into how it got there, just seemingly discarded, not even buried, under the porch. I have lived here for 3 years and the prior owners would be in their 80s, but I don’t know anything about them. It could be a “souvenir” that a vet brought back (the police said they find a lot of grenades). But one cop who is about to retire after 28 years on the force said he’s never seen anything like this before!”

“Dear PoPville,

I found this thing that looks like either some kind of lawn ornament or a missile! I found it only slightly buried underneath my front porch in the Kingman Park neighborhood. I have no idea what it is! It’s fairly heavy and made of metal. One of the pics has my hand in it for scale.” Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I recently overheard a conversation inside ACE Hardware in Woodley Park. A staff member was telling a customer that the store would be closing permanently in a month or two, because it had never made a profit in its 10 year history. Say it ain’t so!”

The owners sadly confirm the coming closing: “We will be closing in August and our team members will be transferred to another one of our locations if they would like to continue to work with us.” Read More
