Yesterday the power went out in the hotel (even though it had power during the storm) on a day that, according to the news, broke 1000+ records for high temperature, including our hotel area (washington dc) and they declared a state of emergency. We survived (staying in the hotel all day), and just before we went to bed, the power came back on.

Today we swam in the hotel pool (which was closed the previous day due to the power outage) then took the metro to georgetown where we ate dinner. while waiting for a boat tour, we ran through a fountain (as many other kids were doing, picture below). When the boat finally arrived, it turned out they only took cash (not credit cards), so we took a bus and the metro to the hotel.
