Rainy Day Chaos on Metro

Is That Waterfall Supposed to Be There?

Ok, for the first time in a few weeks, I took (or attempted to take) metro home from work. We had a rainy day yesterday here in DC, about 2 inches on 24 hours, which is a lot of rain, but nothing out of the ordinary. Anyway, I walk down on to the platform at Farragut North and it is teeming with people. I hear rushing water and look across the tracks to the tunnel wall where a large sheet of water is flowing down the side of the station and directly into a lighting fixture. One train arrives (only four cars as opposed to the normal six)'s already full. The message board (it's working today) indicates that the next three trains are out of service and not taking passengers. The platform keeps filling up. I leave.
