Do you enjoy long walks around the National Mall? Or, like me, do you run the Mall?
On your sojourns do you expect to find water fountains that work? Free thirst-quenching refreshment ready for your consumption?
Well don’t expect it anytime soon. As I learned this weekend, the water fountains on the Mall are off now. Off till spring at least.
Oh, and we’re not talking the first days of spring either. As my broken water fountain photo pool from April of last year shows, its gonna be damn near summer before the Mall will be de-parching.
Ah, but the concession stands are always open.
