Ghosts & blackouts? D.C. area blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Seems that when it comes to extreme weather, the D.C. area is overachieving. The Capital Weather Gang says we've already set a heat record at Dulles Airport. Will Reagan National be next? It's a holiday for some -- but the D.C. area blogosphere is as busy as ever. Some useful advice to file away for the next power outage from All Life is Local. And we've got what looks like a killer recipe for double-baked sweet potatoes from Macheesmo.

Some great advice from All Life is Local on handling a power outage – something which has become all too familiar to folks around the D.C. area this year. One hint: Those battery power-candles? Kind of annoying.

Just in time for Halloween, The Hill is Home’s Tim Krepp and Robert Pohl offer this chilling tale of Patrolman Sedgwick’s Ghost who may be haunting Capitol Hill. Want to know more Capitol Hill lore? You can join Tim and Robert on one of their great Walking Shtick Tours.

Pretty pictures. Two in DC offers these fabulous shots of D.C.’s famous monuments at night.

Have issues with a possibly oversensitive red light camera at First Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW? Here’s your chance to do something about it. One of the members of the ANC is looking for feedback. Thanks to Bloomingdale for this tip.

Just ignore the shot of that giant stick of butter and prepare to tuck into this recipe for double-baked sweet potatoes courtesy of Macheesmo. Hey, it's never too late to start trying out those Thanksgiving side dishes!

A novel way to get your veggies? Perhaps you can balance out those double-baked sweet potatoes with some … broccoli cupcakes. Seriously. There are photos via CupcakesOMG!

That's it for now.Thanks much for reading and have a great afternoon. Know of a great blog I'm missing, message me and let me know at You can also get your daily D.C. area blogosphere roundup via Twitter.
