Meghan and Allison let’s us know: “Heard a lot of big booms this morning…is it cannon practice day at Arlington National Cemetery?”

“Yes, @PoPville, we know. Cannons, Arlington, practice, etc.”

And last night readers reported starting around 9:45pm: “FYI, there was just an explosion somewhere around Delafield and Georgia. No idea what it was, but I heard/felt it at 13th and Delafield”

“Wtf is happening in Petworth/16th St Heights??? Copters, sirens, loud bang.”


“Dear PoPville,

On my way to work this morning, as I was attempting to clean my windshield …I turn on my wipers and realized someone removed my wiper blades.

As I continued driving to work my fuel cap indicator began to blink on my console. I pulled over thinking I needed to tighten up my fuel cap, and realized that was gone.

It would appear individuals are removing car parts from vehicles at night.

The only positive outcome is that the thieves did not vandalize my car!”


From an email:

“Rodney Henry, founder of Dangerously Delicious Pies, is excited to announce that the celebrated Baltimore eatery will return to D.C. in 2021. By summertime, sweet and savory pies, coffee, and more will be available at 4602 14th Street NW. We plan to start building it out in a couple weeks and hope to have it open by the middle to late June.” Read More
