    [​IMG] At 4:30 pm today everyone in the DC Metro area found out that the subway is shut down. Some people think they are shutting it down to avoid a terrorist attack.

    We had really warm weather last week and the cherry blossoms are about to pop. My theory is that they didn't want to close the subway down over the weekend because the cherry blossoms are a big deal and lots of tourist are in town.

    My wife and I were riding the subway in DC. We were sitting first row near a door facing forward. After the door there was a bench seat facing the aisle. Same thing on the other side. A black businessman or politician was sitting on the bench seat in front of us. First stop a good looking blonde with boots up to her thighs and hemline basically at her naval. Probably a high end escort. She sits in the bench seat opposite the guy. I'm looking at her, then him, then her. I'm thinking "He might be getting a show" with her mini dress. He gets off a few stops later. As he rises from his seat he looks at me, smiles, and mouths "no panties"!

    Top notch subway system. Puts philly and new york to shame

    I would buy that this is because of a scare. No other reason i can think that they wouldnt do it on a weekend

    DC Metro used to be decent until about 10 years ago. Has basically sucked since. New metro director is now in place. Hopefully getting these chronic maintenance problems under control.

    So true about it being better than Phillie and NYC. Better than Boston too.
    But feel so stupid. Didn't even think of this until I saw it here. I lived there for several years. Have many friends and family living there including one kid of mine. I hope it's not true :(

    That really is the DC commute on a good day. And yes- that's what it will be like tomorrow
