From a press release:

“Some of the world’s most iconic landmarks will go dark on March 25 at 8:30pm local time to celebrate Earth Hour 2017, the world’s largest movement in support of action on climate change.

These will include the Empire State Building, the Space Needle and much of the Las Vegas strip, providing a powerful visual backdrop in support of Earth Hour.

As part of Earth Hour, people, cities and businesses around the world will switch off their lights for one hour to draw attention to the urgent need to step up our fight against climate change. With the historic Paris Agreement on climate change now in full force, there’s never been a more crucial time to hold leaders accountable and show strong public support for efforts to stem climate change.

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

“Dear PoPville,

I live in a semi detached duplex style house. The neighbor was issued a stop work order in August 2016. The house is currently a see thru with a failing structure. Our party wall is made of wood (shiplap) and it is serving as my exterior wall. I currently have wildlife inside the walls of my home because the party wall was damaged leaving gaping holes larger enough for squirrels or rats or even raccoons. (more…)

Ed. Note: If you get good cherry blossom photos be sure to tag us on Instagram #PoPville, upload to the PoPville flickr pool, tweet us @PoPville or email [email protected] thanks!!

From WMATA:

This weekend, riders on the Red, Green, Orange and Silver lines will enjoy regular weekend service with no track work as Metro eases up on most daytime maintenance to accommodate Cherry Blossom visitors. For the next several weekends, the only daytime weekend trackwork will be SafeTrack related, affecting customers on the Blue and Yellow lines primarily south of Reagan National Airport in Virginia. The ongoing SafeTrack surge is a long-term project through April 12 that has Blue and Yellow line trains sharing a single track between Braddock Road and Van Dorn Street/Huntington. (more…)
