On the YouTubes: We Watch the Reston Association Videos So You Don't Have To

One sentence captures the zeitgeist of this August offering of fancy video news from the Reston Association: dulcet-toned Andy Sigle in a hardhat and reflective safety vest. Gather the small children in the house around the computer, because they'll love watching the dump trucks cruising around the giant pit that will soon become a wondrous field of parallelograms.

We have to admit that there's some pretty sweet cinematography and borer-on-ground action while a Comstock PR person rattles off a long series of Fun Facts about the project: the garage will be the equivalent of 27 football fields (but still be full by 6:59 each morning) and require 100,000 cubic yards of concrete that will necessitate the construction of "batch concrete plants" on site. Awesome!

Then abruptly, Andy's poolside, fortunately without the hardhat, to talk about the RA lifeguard olympics. There's footage of a synchronized swimming demonstration that reminded us a little of this. And finally, to prove that Reston Today isn't afraid to tackle the tough subjects that us craven "web loggers" steer clear of for fear of reprisals, Andy explores a burning question: Was a good time had by all at the Reston Festival? Signs point to yes!
