Water Fountains Off – I am Parched!

Do you enjoy long walks around the National Mall? Or, like me, do you run the Mall?

On your sojourns do you expect to find water fountains that work? Free thirst-quenching refreshment ready for your consumption?

Well don’t expect it anytime soon. As I learned this weekend, the water fountains on the Mall are off now. Off till spring at least.

Oh, and we’re not talking the first days of spring either. As my broken water fountain photo pool from April of last year shows, its gonna be damn near summer before the Mall will be de-parching.

Ah, but the concession stands are always open.

    Remeber that fridgidly cold day last week (wind, freakin cold – Wednesday)k… well, I walked by the White House, and lo and behold, their fountain was on. I was wondering why I wasn’t seeing sprays of man made snow drifting away in the spray… sometime the actiosn of the grounds reflects the perceived intelligence of the resident of the property.
