Metro garage parkers, sound off

There are still reports coming in from commuters about snow blocking spots at Metro parking garages. If you want to share your experience, especially if you park in the Glenmont lot, please contact Nicole Norfleet at 202-334-9617 or via email at

I'm not sure what the top levels of the Vienna garages look like, but the lower levels are fine. The surface lots have been plowed fairly good by now. Remember people, there was a LOT of snow. Until Metro can bring in backhoes and dump trucks, they need to put it somewhere.

At the West Falls lot it looked like the workers were working very hard to remove the snow - much harder than most seem to work on a regular day.

Tuesday morning's relatively smooth commute was a false start due to OPM's declaration of delayed arrival/unscheduled leave. WMATA was poorly prepared for Wednesday's return to work. I arrived at the Shady Grove station at 8 am to find both east and west surface lots filled to capacity, with huge mounds of snow filling parking spaces and spilling into the traffic lanes. The upper deck of the smaller garage was still covered with snow, reducing the station's parking capacity by another several hundred spaces.

Ironically, access to the garage's top deck was physically blocked by four mini front-end loaders parked across the ramps, whose crews were nowhere to be found, despite the snow they should have been shoveling in anticipation of the Federal government's return to normalcy.

Why wasn't the Shady Grove station listed among the Metro lots with snow removal problems in Wednesday's Post article? It would have saved me from a lot of headache and frustration!
