WMATA

I took the Metro today for the first time in a little over 9 months, because I had a doctor's appointment and I can't deal with driving in the city. The train was really empty, so social distancing was not an issue at all.


I need to get some additional lab work (iron and vitamin B tests) because of mild anemia. But everything else is stable. I do have some other things to catch up on - eye exam and mammogram - but those are not urgent.


On the way home, WMATA proved that they can continue to annoy me. I got to the Foggy Bottom station and saw the Vienna train was scheduled to come in 2 minutes. Except that right then there was a cable failure in Rosslyn and they started single tracking, so I ended up having a 20 or so minute wait.


It's only going to get worse if they don't get a bailout. They're threatening to end weekday service at 9 p.m. and stop all weekend service. That would complete screw with my social life once I can have one again. This entry was originally posted at https://fauxklore.dreamwidth.org/480466.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
