How'd Metro Do In the Snow?

We were able to work from home today, but would love to hear from anyone out there who had to brave the elements. How'd Metro do? Tell us the good, the bad and the ugly.

They certainly sounded confident in this press release, and then later did come out with an update that buses were being affected, but not rail.

From WaPo:
For local commuters, Metrorail opened on time at 5 a.m. and was not experiencing delays, officials said. Metro ran empty trains overnight while the system was closed, to keep snow from accumulating on the tracks, and was running trains with special equipment today to keep snow and ice from building up.

I was shocked that the buses even arrived AT ALL. Like, even remotely close to on time. Slight unsuck-itude.
