Today’s Metro Lesson: The Orange Goes Kapowie

After this morning, I am pretty sure the current state of WMATA should be considered one of the Seven Signs of the Apocalypse. I mean, if today’s Orange/Blue catastrophe isn’t God pouring out His wrath, what is?

Some wheels popped off a big vacuum thing and Metro Hell was created.

It took God seven days to create the Earth. But Metro created Hell with one derailment. Just sayin'.

Welcome to Rosslyn. Today's its masquerading as the Sixth Circle of Commuter Hell.

Welcome to Rosslyn. Today it is doubling as the Sixth Circle of Commuter Hell.

Metro lies. Estimated wait time is more like an eternity squared.

The Commutership: annoyed, harassed and under caffeinated.

A train! A train! But it's actually Metro being all taunty. It arrived on the top platform but it's going to Vienna.

A train! A train! But it's actually Metro being all taunty. It arrived on the top platform but it's going to Vienna. Everybody trying to get to the District remains screwed.

Please note the time and Metro's seeming inability to get its shit together as demonstrated by the continued delays.

Please note the time on the screen shot and then contemplate Metro's seeming inability to get its shit together.

    Yeah! metro really screwed up today…. my main issue with them is when these “derailments” happen they send alerts that state Delays to to track work…or my fave from last time mechanical difficulties.

    if they would at least say… delays due to derailment, people could plan better.

    By plan better, you mean call off work citing a Metro Day, right?

    I left way early and was still late for work — after 10 minutes of sitting around on the platform, I gave up and walked the rest of the way.

    Walking would take me almost forever…Further confirmation I need to move into the District.

    At least your tweets made me laugh this morning. And it’s really about me, after all, isn’t it?

    Sorry lover!

    Just wait til this afternoon. Cari just emailed me an update showing they stupid thing derailed again! TEN MINUTES after they finally fixed it at 2:4o-something this afternoon. I am sleeping under my desk tonight.

    A fellow Orange Liner! After my train got off-loaded in Ballston, I ended up walking to Courthouse since the line for the 38B bus was way too long. The trip home was even worse.

    Getting back to NoVA was a nightmare. It was stop, go two feet, stop, sit in tunnel, sit, sit, sit, sit, sit, two feet, sit….
