Metro will operate normally today despite snow
WMATA says that rail and bus service will operate normally today, despite forecasts for several inches of snow.
Of course "normally" isn't always a good thing. The Federal Government was released two hours early today, and as the 5pm crowd left work (at 3pm), we have heard several reports that Metro was not in rush hour mode.
As it approaches 5:00 p.m., Metro should be adding more trains and more cars to those trains.
Be careful on the platforms, as they may be slippery.
Metro will suspend above ground service only if it snows more than 8 inches because electrical power cannot get to the train.
