Help stuff an ART bus: D.C.'s blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Riding Metro makes people want to do many things -- but dancing? Unsuck DC Metro offers a Metro version of "Happy Feet," minus the penguins. As the temperature drops, Capitol Hill Style offers some stylish ways to stay warm. And, Arlington's transit officials are hoping you'll help them make the holidays brighter for area children and families.

It’s not too late to be a part of Arlington Transit’s holiday “Stuff a Bus” campaign, which runs through Dec. 2. ART buses on routes 41, 42, 45, 51, 52, 53, 74, 75, 77, 84 and 87 will have gift-wrapped boxes near the front of the bus for passengers to donate unwrapped items such as stuffed animals, toys, books and clothes. The Commuter Page Blog has more details.

Metro makes some people feel like dancing? Unsuck DC Metro offers us a YouTube video of another Metro dancer.

The U.S. Capitol Christmas tree makes a stop in … Chevy Chase. Even 65-foot Christmas trees run into traffic, eh? Thanks to Chevy Chase Patch.

Because we know (though my mom still reminds me) that we need to keep our heads covered if we want to stay warm, we thank Capitol Hill Style for this collection of fabulous hat styles.

Public transportation doesn’t have to be ugly. Beyond DC rates local bus systems on the quality of their bus designs.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the afternoon. It's going to be stormy tonight so make sure you've got extra batteries for those flashlights -- just in case. Back tomorrow with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere.
