What Is This Bizarre Substance In Front of the Dupont Metro?

What Is This Bizarre Substance In Front of the Dupont Metro?

So there are always coffee or ice cream spills in front of metro stops throughout the city...but this particular substance might take the cake on disgustingness.

I saw it this morning when I got off the Dupont South Metro escalators, and was thoroughly grossed out.  

Any guesses as to what it is?  And how long do you think it will take to be cleaned up?

High Winds Damage NPR Building

WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- High winds damaged a banner pole outside of the NPR building Monday morning, emergency officials said.

The pole came loose and damaged three glass panes and one office window pane.

All the window in the building are double-paned, only the outer panes were damaged.

The fire department responded to the building, secured the damaged windows and cleaned up the glass that had fallen.

Continue Riding Trough the Winter: Cold Weather Biking Tips

It’s hard to believe it’s only mid-December and we've already seen our first snowflakes, accompanied by freezing temperatures and wind advisories. While the D.C. area doesn’t generally get the kind of snow we saw last year, we certainly see our fair share of occasional flurries, as well as miserably cold and wet weather, which can make for treacherous conditions when biking on roads and trails. And as the days get shorter, most cyclists will probably be riding home from work in the dark. So, if you plan to continue commuting by bike through the winter months, start preparing now in order to stay warm and safe as weather conditions shift.
