There are delays on the Blue and Orange lines heading towards Franconia-Springfield and Vienna, respectively. This is owing to an earlier train malfunction outside of Stadium-Armory, which Metro's Web site says has been resolved.

Blue and yellow delays due to power problem near Alexandria yard. Possibly all the way to Reagan-difficult to understand announcent on train. Nothing on wmata website, but I think it is single tracking.

I walked into King Street, saw four trains hit the platform in the other direction over 12 minutes without seeing one on my side, and walked out. Working from home is better than sitting on the train for two hours, right?

Probably a 20 minute wait at Eastern Market. I don't believe a single announcement was made why we were waiting.
