"Worst Week in Washington" winner: D.C. Commuters

By Chris Cillizza

Worst. commute. ever.

Those three words defined the week in Washington as horror stories of commutes in excess of 12 hours -- not kidding -- emerged in the wake of Wednesday's snow.

As we write in the Sunday newspaper:

"This past week's snowstorm -- timed by nature to coincide perfectly with the legions of drivers leaving early to try to beat rush hour -- tested even the most committed of Washington's commuter class. Metro buses skidded out; Metro trains slowed to a crawl."

D.C. commuters were the overwhelming winner of this week's "Worst Week in Washington" award.
