Thunder 'n Lightnin'

So, how was your commute in this morning? In spite of some truly fantastic thunder amd lightning over our fair city, this dutiful corporate citizen was up and out the door by 8 AM, and had no troubles whatsoever catching the Metro to work. Of course, that's because I don't take the Orange Line, which by all accounts was a giant cluster.

The great thing about loud storms is the wonderful responses they tend to generate. For the "Storm Comment of the Day", we turn to DCist, where commenter AMDCer had this to say, with regards to traffic light outages:

All of the traffic lights around Dupont Circle were flashing red this morning due to the storm. Not surprisingly, traffic was moving much better than usual...

Hear, hear.
