In our own little corner of our own building in its corner of Friendship Heights in Chevy Chase, MD all we had to worry about was this:
But just as a measure of the good fortune of the tenants in our building, there's this:
The poor guy who parked across the street didn't fare well, however. At least it's not a total loss.
The street is still cordoned off. My assumption is that areas around Montgomery County had even more blowdown and more important power fixes to be made. We are patient because we can see that it could have been so much worse. We took a long walk through the Somerset neighborhood, which is one of those lovely areas full of beautiful trees. Hardly a limb on the ground there. That's the edge-of- your seat report from Friendship Heights.
UPDATE: At around 6:30 pm we walked east on Willard Avenue to have dinner and discovered we had not fully explored the damage. Another tree lay across the street about 100 years east of our building. By the time we finished dinner and walked home, a tree removal service had fully removed the tree and a PepCo truck was in place ready for repairs. The regional power companies have been listening to their customers.
