Tree Incident on Potomac Ave

Fallen tree on Potomac Avenue SE

You may have noticed that a portion of Potomac Avenue SE (between 17th Street SE and E Street SE) was closed down Wednesday night due to a fallen tree. You may have also noticed a car under the fallen tree.

My car.

The heavy, wet snow caused the tree to collapse. Fortunately, no one was injured and no other cars were hit. The city came on Thursday morning and chopped up the tree. Amazingly, my car only had minimal damage (no cracked windshield or dents).

I owe a big thank you to Lt. Thornton and MPD Officers Wagner and Kopp for notifying me and directing traffic around the closed section of Potomac Avenue.

How did your streets look on Wednesday night/Thursday morning? Let me know if there were any problems re: plowing, fallen trees, branches, etc.

Have a nice (and safe) weekend!
