Some twists in transit service

Some sense of normalcy returns to the area this morning. The federal government is fully open today for the first time since Feb. 4. It has stopped snowing, albeit for a little while. And commuter services are generally back up and running, with only a few exceptions:

VRE: Fully operating.
MTA Commuter Bus: Operating a regular full schedule on all routes.
MARC: Full service and on schedule.
DASH: Regular weekday service, all routes on all streets.
Fairfax Connector: All routes operating all service.
Ride On: Some minor delays due to snow removal. Some detours -- Routes 13 and 19 bypassing Three Oaks (using Silgo Creek to Wayne Avenue), Route 16 bypassing Quebec Terrace (using Piney Branch to New Hampshire Ave in both directions) and Route 20 bypassing Nolte Avenue (using Silgo Avenue to Fenton Street).
Amtrak: No cancellations or closures.
Metrorail: No delays or closed stations at this time.
Metrobus: There are still 22 bus routes listed as delayed, lingering from Tuesday into Wednesday.

I know it might be a little too early, but is Metro planning on staying open till its normal 3am closing time on Friday and Saturday? It always seems like they make an announcement at the last movement for something that could be announced in advance.

Fairfax County needs to bring bobcats to clear the sidewalks around the Wiehle Avenue Park and Ride lot and leading to the overflow lot before someone gets killed. The huge piles of plowed snow on the sidewalks are forcing people to walk in the street on this major artery and it was pretty terrifying to navigate by them this morning.
