Bully for all you living directly off the blue/orange line who can skate right into work. LOL. When I last lived in VA, I alternately worked off the green and red lines, which required driving to a metro stop or waiting for a bus, then getting to the metro, waiting for a train, switching tracks and then having a brisk walk. Not exactly a 6 minute commute.
I'm now considering leaving the dog with family this summer.
