    Oh lordie… not again!

    Can the street car run without electricity like busses can?

    • wat

      Will people venture out into lesser neighborhoods they don’t live or work in on a bus like they will on a street car?

      • novasteve

        If the power is out, they’re not going anywhere on a street car. In fact they become very expensive paperweights when the power is out.

        • Hank

          What is your income, Steve?

          • I’ll ask the questions here

            Do you own or rent?

          • bman

            he has solar panels AND a generator.

      • Mary-Austin

        what is a lesser neighborhood?

        • Yes, Yes I Did

          A flooded out Donaldson Run.

        • novasteve

          Where people can’t afford to eat/drink at some Tavern that has an extensive beer list, wraps, exotic salads, where the clientele drive Priuses.

    • YTK

      The passengers will have a mandate to get out and PUSH them.

  • Replicant

    wouldn’t want to be in a electric high wire streetcar when lighting strikes 🙂

    • Eric

      If 1.21 gigawatts hits the flux capacitor the new streetcars will disappear into the future.

      • d’man

        Bwahaha.

  • D’oh

    wouldn’t want to be in a electric high wire streetcar ever

  • Alex

    Ready and waiting. Looks like most of it may miss this area if it keeps at the current trajectory.

  • CW

    Cold front? I like the sound of that!

    • Joehoya

      My weather bug still says a high of 90 tomorrow, 102 on Thursday. Maybe that’s a cold front in Cairo, but not here.

      • CW

        Haha, yep. Soon as I typed my comment I checked weather.com. Should have reversed the order – the joke was on me.

  • Riley

    PANIC!!!

  • bman

    weather.com reporting no rain and clearing
    maybe southwest (fairfax) and northeast (DC) of arlington could get wet

    is this cancelled?

  • DERECHO

    HAY, DOES ANYBODY MIND IF I PASS THROUGH FOR A QUICK VISIT LATER?

    … kthx.
