Helping To Put Things In Context: Something You Should Know About D.C.
Everyone knows Washington, D.C. for being the nation's capital where decisions are made that affect the country itself and impacts the world at large. But between the time that politicians and special interest groups like to use the city as the reason for all that ails America, it has a more intimate side. This is the side that one could think of as the "local" aspect of the city. I think if people understood what really exists within the boundaries of this diamond shaped (minus a complete side) metropolis, their perspectives may be altered considerably. As AWashingtonWoman will continue to focus on some of the wonderful women who make up the fabric of the DMV (a term used for the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and includes: the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia), we will also strive to give you a little of the backstory, as objectively as we can. So it's been a year since this all began and without really trying, this blog has exceeded what our expectations were. So we are thinking that with a little love and a lot of integrity, we can share some real true insight which can be entertaining as well as informative. Who knows?.... Maybe it will even be ..... helpful.

EARTHQUAKE IN WASHINGTON, D.C. CAUSES WOMEN AT WORK AND THROUGHOUT TO SEEK OUT KIDS AND FAMILY
It felt like 10,677 tons of TNT according to the local news reporter at WUSA-TV in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. At approximately 1:47pm houses, offices, and government building all started to rumble. The epicenter is located in a place called Mineral, Virginia. This is about 41 miles from the nation's capital. Early reporting suggests little damage to our structures here. However, there does appear to have been damage to the National Cathedral. This is a church where many state funerals and events take place. More information to follow.
