Around 11:15pm Tuesday night power was finally restored to Dupont/Logan/14th after many delays. It’ll be interesting to see the after action report on this and more importantly lessons learned. In the meantime thanks to all who updates us on twitter via email. The good word started to spread around 11:15pm:

“power seems to be restored on 14th! YAY!”

“power just came on in Logan (13th & R)! #lettherebelight”

“1900 R/1600 Connecticut block has power as of about 5 minutes ago.”

“Power is back on at 13th and U!”


“power went on in Logan Circle around 11:15pm. I understand power outages happen- I’m more pissed I was told 2 more hours- ALL DAY.”

Also from WMATA:

“As of 6 a.m., Metro is in the process of restoring regular weekday bus service on ALL routes. Buses will begin moving out to their starting locations shortly.

It will take about one hour — until approximately 7 a.m. — before normal weekday service is restored. Customers should allow additional time as buses resume normal operations.

Buses are expected to operate on normal routing. Any unplanned detours or delays will be announced on wmata.com, via MetroAlerts and Twitter.”

  • …and yet, 24 hours after the storm, most of the streets in the western end of Petworth are still unplowed and untreated–essentially a mass of frozen ruts. Way to go DPW!

    (Not that I’m not happy for DC residents in Logan and Shaw. Nothing sucks worse than no heat when the temperatures dropping into the low 20s.)

  • FYI: Lights are on, but as of an hour ago, still major work in Dupont where the original problem seems to have happened. NH and 18th are closed between Q & R.

    • There are some areas where the lights still do not work, at least until this afternoon according to Pepco, especially around 18th street between r and s. Mine came on last night! Rave!

    Bus routes return to normal, except that the D6 was 20 minutes late this morning, and had 2 empty buses directly behind it. So they had all passengers crammed into one bus because so many people had accumulated at each station, and then 2 empty ones running right behind it. So stupid.
