this afternoon Rachel and I took a year's worth of loose change to the coin counter at Chevy Chase bank on Georgia at Cameron. On the way home we ran into this work crew on Sligo Avenue near Georgia Avenue. They were using jack hammers on the street, and were standing on the sidewalk. Ordinarily, I would switch to the other side of the street at this point. The problem is that the other side is blocked as well - AS USUAL.
Cars parked at several auto shops here block the sidewalk. Men were working on these two vehicles on the sidewalk. Rachel suggested that we go over to Gist, but that is just as bad.
We also walked by the gaping hole in the sidewalk near our home. The recent rains have increased the size of this hole, It's at least 2-feet deep.
