Saturday afternoon was a beatuful day. I took the opportunity to walk through Truxton, from my house in Eckington to the Shaw metro. There were lots of people out on the street or hanging out on their stoops. Some walked dogs and others did yardwork. The residents were very friendly and all said hello. That is one of the great things about the beginning of spring; people are happy to see the sun, and get outdoors and share the good weather with passers by. It is great to begin to feel a part of the neighborhood.
U St NE-- This street has been absolutely butchered by department of public works for sewer/water pipe replacement or other improvement. there are huge square patches every two feet from 2nd st to lincoln. Perhaps I will write a note to Mayoral hopeful Vinny Orage and see if it can get fixed.
