More Signs of the Times: Alien Invasion Presaged By Restriping Project, Cute Graffiti


Looks like those mysterious new markings being painted on Soapstone Drive are intended for more than just turning vehicles and spandex-clad cyclists. Confidential Restonian Operative "Ed" and several vigilant Twitter machine spotters sent us these terrifying photos that remind us that once again, we are Not Alone, though the menace of the undead appears to have subsided.

Meanwhile, Twitter Operative "almonstro" shares this terrifying photo. "Graffiti has gotten pretty tough in Reston," he writes.

Stranger and stranger. We, for one, welcome our new canine overlords from above.


  1. Now we know the true purpose of the "road diet" - it is an alien spacecraft landing strip in disguise! Are they coming to study "Homo Suburbus" in his native habitat?

  2. They're coming for our Slurpees. God help us all.

  3. There was some really cute graffiti I saw the other day along the W&OD near Plaza America. It made me wonder for a second if it actually was graffiti and not the natural contours of the land...but now I can't remember what it was. Probably a panda bear or something. Is there a panda bear gang?
