Anyone shared any reason why there is a red cloth tied around a lot of trees and poles in Scott Circle in DC today? Is it just a Valentine’s Day or is it maybe a heart health awareness thing? Quite a few of the cherry trees, the Webster statue base, and other trees also have them.”
You want amenities?!? We got amenities!!

I was walking down Connecticut this morning when I heard a large explosion sound coming from the intersection at Columbia Rd. I turned to see the driver of a 43 bus getting off the bus to examine the bus. Thankfully, another 43 pulled up moments later, and all of the passengers from the first bus offloaded and boarded the much coveted 43.”
I find them all up and down U and 9th Streets, usually on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Literally dozens on the street and all over the sidewalk every weekend morning! There are varying colors, sizes, and styles. I am so intrigued.”
I was gonna guess glow sticks but the blue one doesn’t look like one. Somebody enlighten us please!!
Watched a @cvspharmacy employee empty all these bottles of Clorox BLEACH into the street Friday night. When confronted, he refused to acknowledge me. #CVS wtf ? @dcwater @NCC_CNC pic.twitter.com/AoP2c0zwWQ

Thanks to Marty for alerting me to the above. CVS responded:
“Hi there, thank you for reaching out. Can you please DM us with your phone number and the exact CVS location so that a member of our team can follow up to learn more? Thank you.”
Unfortunately CDubs tells me as of noon today CVS had not responded to her reply.
Yikes all around.
Intentional or unintentional? That is the question. Or does it even matter at this point…
Thanks to Jess for sending:
“I think the Newseum is flying the DC flag upside down? I mean, we are in distress, but…”
Fortunately the Newseum quickly replied:
“Whoops, you’re right. We are fixing it right now.”
Strange days my friends. Strange days indeed.
