Shirlington Village Without Power

Stores and restaurants closed early in Shirlington Village, which lost power during this afternoon’s severe thunderstorms and hasn’t seen the lights come back yet. Small branches and leaves littered the tree-lined main drag of Campbell Avenue.

At least one bar valiantly stayed open, however. Bistro Bistro was serving bar patrons by candlelight and flashlight, while groups of people casually sat drinking beers on the outdoor patio.

Just down the street, a big backup was forming at the intersection of South Quincy Street and Campbell Avenue, where the traffic light was dark. Traffic on a nearby on-ramp to I-395 was moving, but very slowly.
