Sidewalk Snake!

Thanks to Tracey for sending: “Hope this snake currently wiggling itself down the sidewalk on 20th St in Kalorama Triangle isn’t venomous!”

Anyone recognize what type this is?

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Friends of the White Whale Society.

“Dear PoPville,

I just wanted to write to share the story of a good Samaritan who helped me and my partner out with car trouble this evening in Kalorama.

Lo and behold, a man (middle aged with Caribbean accent of some kind, introduced self as Jeronimo on his way out) driving by us asked if we needed a jump.

Difficult to safely make a right turn onto Tracy Pl from Kalorama Rd. One on Kalorama Rd not as obstructive, but still…why do they not get ticketed? Inquiring minds want to know…” Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Was walking through Kalorama with my fiancée and our pug earlier today when we came across a structure I would love to know more about.

Located on Belmont Rd. NW just south of the intersection with Waterside Dr., it’s a big concrete slab with railings all around and a large “cover” of some sort over a big square section. Read More
