When Ann says “cloudy, cold skies, and enough rain to break our drought” she 
means “grey, drizzling, spatters of stuff that comes down for hours and turns 
everything into slimy mud.” Rain in DC is not the same as rain in other places. 
It isn’t clear sparkling water that cleans the air leaving everything refreshed 
and shiny. It’s grey.

Busboys and Poets, the local book decorated food and lecture hall restaurant, 
has a drink called “DC Water.” It looks like it should be translucent but 
isn’t. It’s a Martha Stewart blue that has been through recycling, and then 
faded. The rain is like that only grey, and not faded.

So anyone who would voluntarily go outside in DC rain and put a bid in on a wet 
unit, has been motivated by powerful, dark, outside forces. And R&R was able to 
find 4 of them. (We are thinking of renting them out. Stay tuned.)
