Amazing. Whenever I whine about the transportation crisis in NoVA everyone thinks I'm a troll. Now who has egg on their face?

Landmark to Ballston: Going in was good, Getting out was terrible. Glebe was jammed, the 395-Shirlington interchange was jammed, Van Dorn Street was jammed, Stevenson Ave was only one lane so you know that took forever. So about one hour for what is usually a 25 min drive home. The drive was my fault partly because of a mistake I made at work that kept me in Ballston until 5 when I'm usually out at 3:45-4 on Fridays.

Should the Federal Government have been open today? With Metro running on a limited schedule and roads in DC not plowed enough to handle even a fraction of a regular rush hour, it was a mess: 2 1/2 hours to get from 66 and the Beltway over the TR because there was only one clear lane on the bridge. 1 1/2 hours to get from 18th and Constitution to 18th and I Street because there was only one lane. I don't know what the solution is, but it seems this was not it.

If we hadn't opened the Republicans who listen to Rush Limbaugh would have been foaming at their mouths.

Didn't notice any difference when Fed workers stayed home. The world won't miss the thousands of CYA e-mails you guys didn't get to send out.

Who cares? In fact, those people who were complaining need to realize that it was a liberal leave policy. People should have stayed home rather than complain about it... Again, I ask - What would Ferris Bueller do?
