Looks like this tree branch went after the VW rather than wait for a bug to come to it. At around 1:30 p.m. on Columbia Heights near Clark Street, a tree branch crashed on the hood of this vintage Volkswagen Bug. The good news is that there doesn’t appear to be much, if any, damage. They just don’t make cars like that anymore.

Less than two weeks ago, the Parks Department’s contractors pruned the trees on this very block. The irony. (Note that when Karl says “Willow” he actually means “Columbia Heights.”)
