A greener D.C.? D.C. area blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. It's pretty wild out there. A pole hit a Red Line train outside of Union Station. And a roof blew off an apartment building in Southeast. Whether you're walking, driving or biking -- be careful out there. Today's selection of blog posts include some fashion tips for gentlemen, as well as some suggestions for things to do with out-of-town visitors in the event of a government shutdown.

Interested in making the D.C. area a greener place? Life on the Edgewood has details about an upcoming Casey Trees, tree planting event. Lots of sites, so hopefully there's one close to you.

For you gentlemen - a primer on how to buy a proper tuxedo , courtesy of Borderstan.

There's a fundraiser for Wilson High School this Saturday and Sunday at Politics and Prose. Buy a book for yourself or from a Wilson High School wish list - either way the school wins. All Life is Local has details.

The Smithsonian Institution, in partnership with the New York State Museum, has launched "Smithsoninan Wild" a new Web site that features candid shots of animals in the wild caught by camera traps. Camera traps are essentially cameras attached to a fixed object that are triggered by an animal's movement. Around the Mall has details.

Expecting out-of-town visitors and worried about how the possible government shutdown might affect their sightseeing plans? No need to panic. DC Like A Local has a whole host of recommendations for things to do.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend. I'll be back on Monday with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere.
