Possible SFG sighting? DC Metro

Post  Megan on 7/23/2010, 6:27 pm

I was on the road for work yesterday, and I could have sworn I saw a SFG from the Capitol beltway. That or someone is trying their hand at a micro-vineyard?

Going northbound (Inner Loop) on I-495 at the exit for Braddock (exit 54)... look to your right just as you are approaching that exit. There is a lot of road work being done there, and some of the tall concrete sound barrier has been removed. There is a backyard visible with lots of raised beds and trellises.

Go to Google Maps and zoom in on that exit. Switch to Satellite View.

There are two yards on Ravensworth Road (the houses that back up to that exit) that have suspiciously square things going on in their back yard. Zoom all the way in to Street view -- there's a cute little red house that has raised beds in the front yard.

True, but the satellite view still shows the sound barrier and none of the current construction...so it's not current. (Google view of my own house shows a vehicle we got rid of years ago!)

I found the backyard that I think is where it might be, but given that *I* would be very creeped out if I found my address posted on the internet in such a thread, I won't post it. But if you are in that neck of the woods... take a peek! Smile
