Looking Back: Biggest Georgetown Stories of 2012 (July Through September)
Continuing our roundup of the biggest stories of the year.
2012 brought a mix of hyperlocal news and regionally-relevant events Georgetown Patch throughout the year.
Here, we continue rounding up the most-read stories throughout 2012.
July — A derecho pounded the DC region in July, taking many by surprise with the significant damage it caused in such a brief pass through the area. Though Georgetown was largely spared from power outages that troubled much of the region, downed trees and branches cluttered the area and many city resources were impacted.
August — Over night a mysterious message appeared on a Georgetown street corner. The message "We were WARNED" turned out to be an ad for the new season of Showtime's Homeland series. The nearest homeowner complained about the new street "art" and it was promptly removed.
September — During routine construction on a Q Street home, workers discovered historic remains. Work halted as anthropoligsts from the DC government and the Smithsonian Institution excavated the remains, which were likely part of an unmarked cemetery.
We'll continue our roundup all through Monday, and recap everything on Tuesday.
