It's Electrifying...and Infuriating
There are lots of words and phrases I could use to describe Pepco related issues over the past couple of days. But I'm going to refrain from that for the moment and just pass on this clarifying email from CHAMPS it seems to cover all the bases:
Businesses on H are ok to turn their power back on, except for those located at 1318 and eastward on the NORTH side of the block. Several of the businesses ended up canceling reservations and/or sending staff home but are now going to open, so if you were thinking about going out tonight, the 1200 and 1300 blocks could use a little love.
There were several Pepco communication failures today which resulted in the power down call. Apparently, they should never have been asked to power down. Tommy Wells arrived on the scene within minutes and was able to get clear communication directives out of Pepco and I think everyone's back on track now.
Also, Pepco is reporting that folks around the 12th and Linden Place NE area have had their power restored. If you are in that area and you are still without power, please contact him at twells at dccouncil dot us.

Also, the traffic lights at 14th & H are back on.
