At our recent trip to Washington, I wondered whether Christo and Jeanne-Claude had wrapped the Washington Monument. But, in fact, it is completely covered so it can be repaired.

According the the Washington Post, "scaffolding is in place again as part of a $15 million project to repair damage sustained during the 2011 earthquake. Decorative lighting and fabric will also be installed. The restoration will take 12 to 18 months, with the monument scheduled to reopen in spring 2014."
