We've gotten quite a number of calls about the Metro accident today. The Human Male, Alice, and I are fine-- along with everyone we know. It happened on my train line (the red), but on the other arm of the U.
The city seems stunned. One of the local news guys on the scene was on the verge of tears. The people they're interviewing from the trains are absolutely shocked. No one can figure out how the train car got on top of the other-- the cars are enormous and pretty flat. Honestly, seeing it and knowing how the cars are arranged inside makes it amazing that anyone could've walked away. It just doesn't make sense.
It's going to be a blue couple of days here, and I think DC could use all the smiles it can get. So here's a funny picture of Alice. This was from the Blessing of the Dogs last month. We got more pictures of her with a goofy grin on her face.
Sending much love to those on the train, their families, and the first responders!
