Yesterday, Rock Creek was frozen in several places.  It looked thick enough to skate on, but ice skating on the creek is probably never a smart idea - the ice is never really as thick as it looks.  By this afternoon, when the temperatures inched into the 60's, we started to see patches of grass. ...

Today was the first time in almost a week that i got out of the house.  And I took this leaving my office to go home.  It's knee + deep piles of snow in front of the office door.  It's no longer pristine and white.  It's getting that layer of soot and car exhaust.  It's supposed to get into the m...

In schoolrooms around the country, children get to see pictures of the Wright brother's airplane, The Spirit of Saint Louis, or the command module that flew Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins to and from the moon.  But kids who live in the Washington, DC metro area can get up...

Last night, I went outside very late, right after the snow had stopped.  The walkway was thigh deep.  The cars were buried in snow. And the skies had gone from a heavy grayz  a hazy shade of salmon pink.  And it was almost like it was daylight.  I took this photo without a flash.  Today, they're ...

It was a dark and snowy night, and when I got home, I heard water running.  But wait!  I was the only one home, and I wasn't using any water!  Turns out, there was a burst pipe in this old house.  I went downstairs to the basement and water was pouring out of the ceiling, adding to the four or so...

They really don't build them like this anymore. 2311 Connecticut Avenue dates back to 1910.  When I first moved to DC  in the early 1970's, it was a cooperative with AstroTurf  on the garden space.  About ten years later, the building changed to a condo, and the new board ripped up the fake grass...

Back when I was taking my courses to become a real estate broker in Washington, DC, the guy teaching the real estate law class loved to regale us with stories about "dower and curtsy", laws that required the signatures of both husband and wife in order to sell a property that they owned, either j...

The market in Washington, DC is a little funny right now, and Chevy Chase is no different.  There is not a lot of inventory, and for the past couple of months, there have been buyers reluctant to make their move. Many thought that maybe Dream House would show up in January.  Their are currently 1...

Washington's "White" ChristmasThis season, we've been having unseasonably warm weather here in Washington, DC.  And on Friday, the white for Christmas was not snow, but fog.  It was the kind of morning where you could go down into Rock Creek Park wearing a sleeveless T-shirt!  The building is the...

Crestwood is one of those neighborhoods that a lot of buyers miss.  It's eastern border is 16th Street, and it's surrounded on the other three sides by Rock Creek Park.  While Crestwood is quite urban (a few miles north of the White House), the feel is quite suburban.  There are a lot of trees, a...
