I was thinking to myself, "Man, it's been a long time since I've been horribly inconvenienced by Metro." The Red Line has been hunky dorey. Everything else is falling apart.
Three trains lost power this morning. Two on the Green Line (West Hyattsville) and one on the Blue/Orange Line between Rosslyn and Foggy Bottom. I noticed that there's a big swath of blue between those two stations. Despite what some amateur cartographers might tell you, the blue is not land. That train is under the river. And that is scary. Man, we've all seen Daylight.* Underwater tunnels are nothing but disaster.
Three trains having the same problem can't be coincidence, can it? I can't wait to find out what problem is crippling the entire Metro system. I also can't wait for it to cripple the Red Line. Nothing like being stranded at work for an extra hour or two.
