Metro Surprisingly Nice This Morning

Metro pillar closeup For the first time in a while, my wife and I had a nice, fast, stress-free, seamless morning Metro commute to work. I think this is the first morning since two Fridays ago that there has not been a “we will hold here for two minutes” backup on the Red Line, “residual” delays on the Orange and Blue, or a jerky “train will move forward” series of stop-start arrivals at various stations.

It’s more than a bit sad that such flawless days on the Metro are becoming more the exception than the rule. Now I bet I’ve jinxed it and will have a hellish trip home tonight.

    I was stuck for two hours on Sunday, and haven’t been able to face the metro during rush hour since. It was an ordeal then, but if I’m crammed in with people shoving me from all sides, somebody would get hurt. I never thought I would choose a bus over the rail though!

    Hope you don’t expect to use the Orange Line this long weekend – see
