A WMATA Welcome Back to Washington DC

Getting off a red eye from PDX at DCA, I was looking forward to a direct Yellow Line ride to Petworth. Foolish me for thinking that Metrorail would be easier than rousing the Betrothed Butterbean for an early morning National Airport pick up.

With the Yellow Line bridge across the Potomac closed, what would be a 20 minute trip is now an hour long two-line transit trauma.

And a classic WMATA welcome back to Washington DC.

    I think the best part about that, though, is that the entire fiasco is a result of the DCFD lighting a bridge on fire for PRACTICE. On a SATURDAY. When there are TOURISTS. God.

    The practice drill was supposed to be from 6 a.m. until 10. There’s no good time to do this stuff.
