Your #disastercommute stories

By Washington Post Editors

Sometimes you can get a little jealous when you're working long after everyone else is headed home. Not tonight. We received tons of reports of disastrously long commutes and shared some of them here. We also asked for some stories with #disastercommute. Check out some early (late?) responses. Share your own by posting a comment below, join the conversation on Twitter by using #disastercommute or send an e-mail to
