Photos: Coolers, Chairs, Sticks and Bricks Stake Shovelers’ Claims

You’ve spent hours shoveling out a parking spot. You are not going to put in all that effort for nothing.

That was the message all along Glade Drive on Wednesday. As many people returned to work, they had to dig out their cars from snowdrifts and snowplow piles.

When they departed, they left behind all sorts of things to mark their sweat-equity territory — a pet carrier, brooms, concrete blocks and a whole variety of chairs, among other items.

Reston Now reader Joy Charles captured photos of some of the creativity along Glade between Reston Parkway and Fairfax Parkway.

Do you think residents should me able to mark parking spots on a public road/main thoroughfare like Glade?
