    I received a response and info to find the status on the service request. The info is confusing. Did they look for a pothole in the street and closed the ticket after not finding any potholes in the...

    The Claritin-D helped. I took a 24-hr pill last night. The rain helped too, by clearing out a lot of the pollen.

    That was from the Natural History Museum. Odd that the students aren't motivated to go to the Air and Space Museum, downtown or the one out in Dulles. They have a lot of interesting lectures there....

    I used the DC 311 website. I didn't see any place to drop a pin on a map. I'm hoping that won't be necessary, since I described the exact spot.
