A View from the Corner Office

By late afternoon today, the heat index had reached 106 degrees. By sundown, however, a thunderstorm arrived with little advance notice. Here is a shot taken from the third floor on the northwest corner of 15th & U Streets, NW. The building in the lower right of the shot is Extra Space Storage at 1420 U Street, NW. It has to be at least 100 years old, although they renovated it last year.
