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.
