DC News You Can (Maybe) Use

WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy.

  • In case you missed it last night our lovely city was graced with very subtle but still sort of noticeable snow flurries. The Washington Post put together a guide on snow in D.C., so if you have a thing about charts on meteorological patterns then boy oh boy, get excited. christmas snow peanuts charlie brown snowing
  • Imagine your reaction if I told you that Amtrak prices were going up by 50%. Now that you’ve experienced what that felt like, let’s talk about how passengers will be allowed to bring their dogs on board Amtrak trains (!!!). Right now Amtrak is still on a trial run of this policy (it ends in February) but it looks like this is going to become a thing on all of their east coast trains (Washingtonian). dog train
  • Sports things: Nationals’ player Bryce Harper is now a brand ambassador of New Era (Rolling Stone).
  • At the annual meeting of the Greater Washington Board of Trade, AOL co-founder Steve Case just said that D.C. “can rise as one of the great entrepreneurial cities” in what he described as the “third wave of the Internet.” Sweeeet (via Biz Journal).

  • On Friday one hundred fifth-graders from Watkins Elementary School will recite the “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial in honor of MLK Day (City Paper).
  • The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (also stands for S.E.X.Y) is saying that there are going to be 400 to 600 water main breaks this winter (WTOP).
  • In an effort to avoid DMV area traffic, commuters are sticking to the Metro and Metro officials are happy about it because those riders are making up for the riders they lost because of higher fare prices. Interesting (Post).
  • Let’s talk about it: DJ Khaled continues his Snapchat domination by inspiring one of the White House Snapchat account’s first snaps. What did it say? “The key: get some rest before the big day” (Post).
  • Remember that one time your family took David Bowie out to dinner in Silver Spring?
