Global Warming in D.C.
Our friend Huckleberry Dumbell passes along this photo as proof of what is wrong with Washington D.C.:
“Always picking the wrong tool to fix a problem.”
By the way, the next time someone like Jim Rowen suggests that the best way to avoid long commute times in the winter weather is to build more trains, check out what’s happening in the commuter rail nirvana that is our nation’s capital:
Metro is not running above ground
It was just announced that the Metrobus and Metrorail system will close above ground operations at 1 P.M. With snowfall rising above 8 inches, Metro believes that by 1 PM the third rail that powers the cars will be fully covered.
Here’s the modified schedule the trains will run:
Yellow Line – Service from Pentagon to Crystal City only
Red Line – Service between Medical Center and Union Station only
Orange Line – Service between Ballston and Stadium-Armory only
Green Line – Service between Fort Totten and Congress Heights only
Blue Line – Service between Ballston (extended to Blue Line) and Stadium-Armory only
