10:10 A.M. UPDATE: Metro says the systems are back online. What's your experience? Post a comment below?

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:
Metro's Web site is working again, but it's loading very, very slowly.

ORIGINAL POST:
Metro's Web site appears to be down this morning. WTOP is reporting that in addition to the Web site, the arrival time signs at stations (alerting riders to the next train) and the public address systems are all down, while the e-mail alerts aren't working either. We have a call into Metro and will alert you as soon as we know more.

The train arrival signs were working fine at Metro Center when I went through there at about 7:45.

On a related topic, is there a good reason that the train arrival signs at end of line stations are always blank? I understand that they can't be precise about when the next train will depart, but they don't even show arrival information.

The train will get there when it gets there, but I would like to know if it will be a six or eight-car train.
