JULY FOURTH: A Rainy Depressing Day

In case you haven't stepped outside, it has been raining all afternoon. The Constitution Avenue parade was cancelled. And yet, thousands of people are descending on the National Mall right now to stake out positions on wet grass to watch the fireworks, scheduled to fire off at 9:10 p.m.

Also, WMATA is operating special Metrorail service. The Yellow Line will terminate at Franconia-Springfield. The Blue Line will run from Rosslyn to Huntington, with only Orange Line trains servicing the I Street and 12th Street downtown subway line.
