I don’t want to say I didn’t know it had been closed for repairs, but I had kind of forgotten:
WASHINGTON — After 32 months, the Washington Monument is finally set to reopen after it suffered widespread damage in an August 2011 earthquake along the East Coast.
Since the 5.8 magnitude earthquake, the 130-year-old monument was covered in scaffolding to repair the more than 150 cracks in the 555-foot obelisk’s white marble.
There. Now go, and take your whole family.
