Lisa Amore and Bruno walk a lot, so get to know the neighborhood around the 900 block of M rather well. The sights, sounds, smells. Ah Smell.
Which prompted this letter from Lisa to Jack:

Subject: Gas leak? Smell of gas in front of 943 M St. NW.
Hi Mr. Evans.
I’m writing you with the hope that your office will investigate a potential gas leak at the NE corner of 10th and M St’s NW, where a single row house is located at 943 M St. NW.
I’ve called in to Washington Gas at least a couple of times in the past year or so when I’ve been walking my dog and smelled gas. They operator told me that they’d send someone out, but it doesn’t seem as if that’s been the case.
This morning around 10am, I smelled a pungent gas smell at that corner (the smell was most strong immediately closest to the corner of the house’s wrought iron fence). And now, yet again, when walking my dog, I smelled the odor again. There’s at least one very elderly person who lives in that building, and I’m concerned for everyone’s safety, let alone the safety of the neighborhood, as I live right down the street in The Whitman.
I feel that placing another call to Washington Gas is futile. Please help!
Thank you. Lisa
