Mail, trash, recycling?

Due to snowmaggedon, a lot of usual services have been delayed or canceled. Folks on the Columbia Heights Yahoo listserve say they haven't gotten any since Friday, though I did see US Mail trucks in Tenleytown yesterday, so maybe they're on the way.

DPW says it will collect trash today, but not recycling, so that's something.


  1. Over in Petworth we haven't received mail since Friday, either and our walkways are cleared. However, we usually have very shotty pick-up and delivery here, so who knows when service will resume.

  2. I received mail for the first time in a week today. Suspiciously, it was only the regular Tuesday junk mail.

  3. I was trying to back my car out of our driveway in the 3500 block of 11th St NW this evening and it got stuck in the snow, overheated, and caught on fire. It is out and no one was hurt, but the vehicle is destroyed. I have been in touch with the police, fire department, my insurer, and towing services, but due to the ice in the alley it has not been able to be moved yet. I just want to apologize to anyone who is inconvenienced.

  4. Thank you very much for your kind notes about my car fire. Luckily no one was hurt, nor was anyone else's property damaged.

    After four different towing attempts, the latest is that my insurer will make arrangements to move the vehicle to their totaling yard Tuesday. I do again apologize for causing this inconvenience to my neighbors.
