Hurricane Sandy Goes to Washington

Hurricane Sandy Goes to Washington

Hurricane Sandy is storming her way into the Nation’s Capital. Emergency shelters are open, the subway is closed, and taxicab fares have an extra $15 storm surcharge.

The Federal and DC governments, Metro, and area schools were closed Monday and will remain closed Tuesday, but at least some folks in this town have a work ethic and sense of duty. There are still sentinels at the Tomb of the Unknowns, and the Annual High Heel Drag Race will clatter down 17th Street on Tuesday as scheduled. Is this a great country, or what?
