New Tourist Attraction

Thar she blows!

Yesterday’s 3 PM power outage following a manhole cover explosion on Kentucky Avenue SE allowed Capitol Hill’s resident telecommuters the perfect excuse for an afternoon nap.

Monday morning’s manhole explosion was on the 900 block of Farragut Street NW, near Georgia Avenue in Petworth. 

Given Pepco’s aging infrastructure, these events are almost predictable. The electric utility should follow the well-known software development principle (“It’s Not a Bug, It’s a Feature”), team up with the Convention and Tourism Corporation, and promote this phenomenon as a new tourist attraction, the Manhole Cover Fountain.
