As you know if you were in the DC Metro area last night, it was really, really windy. So windy, in fact, that the plywood sidewalk cover across the street from the house, erected by the construction company to protect pedestrians, blew over into the street. Luckily, there’s a fire hydrant there, and it’s the side of the street where you can’t park during rush hour, so only one car was hit with debris. Well, lucky if that wasn’t your car, I guess. I mean it was lucky that there weren’t more cars parked there.
The police came, and spent an hour or so driving past, and then backing up (the wrong way down our one-way street), and generally making a nuisance of themselves. Then they put up some crime scene tape and tore off down the street.
As of 7AM this morning, the car with a huge pile of plywood on top of it is due a parking ticket. It may be hard to place the ticket on the car, as the front end is entirely covered. But I fully expect DC’s parking enforcement to try anyway.
