After being couped up in the condo for a long time, we decided it was time to venture out, get some food, pick up a movie and take some shots around the Sloop. We weren't sure what was opened, but called Yolk and they were.
Although you might think the streets would be empty, it was surprisingly busy outside. It was also busy at Yolk. Believe it or not we at 12:30 in the afternoon we had to wait for about 5 to 10 minutes.
Anyway, here are some shots around the Sloop taken by us and a video last night from a reader.

Good luck getting out on 14th street:
An interesting video from last night:
Really starting to blow out there now, must be 50mph from every direction
at once. My wife Cynthia, with Lula, walking east on 18th from Michigan Ave,
crossing Indiana. All the lights are out on that side but the rest of the street
lights give a really weird glow to the neighborhood. (The wind gets really
loud crossing the street...turn speakers down).
