We're still in the middle of the dog days of summer, so what better visuals to greet us as we begin our monthly video exploration of all things Reston than an empty, dug-out pool in which no hot children will play, ever, this summer? Not even Andy Sigle's dulcet tones can take away the Sad of seeing the gutted Dogwood Pool, which will not open this season due to ongoing delays. Zero depth entry pool, fountain jets, and a spray and play area -- all of that Awesome will just have to wait. Good thing there are a few other pools in Reston we can go to in a pinch!
Hey, good news! Turns out you can get your driver's license from an RV parked in front of Reston Town Center. Why RTC? Because as the one part of Reston not governed by the RA, it's the only place where the DMV was actually allowed to park an RV. We'll be sure to bring the Winnebago by for a visit the next time the DMV's in town. Do they have septic hookups near the Mercury Fountain?
There's also some stuff about exotic invasive plants and the Weed Warriors and whatnot, but we weren't really paying attention because we were really rattled by a brief snippet of video:
WATCH OUT, ANDY! Obviously, someone at Reston Today is a film buff, as this is almost a frame-by-frame recreation of this climactic scene.
And with that, we're left to confront the end of yet another summer, as our time on this planet grows inexorably shorter as darkness comes sooner with each passing day. Happy summer!
