J. C. Hayward and AGU in America
After we left Broadcast House, we stopped for lunch at Ruby Tuesday. Everybody had burgers and/or salad. It was fun, but it made us late for Shirley's class. Then the metro train we were riding stopped at Dupont Circle Station. Here's the news report from Channel 9's website:
WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) - Three stations on Metro's Red Line were closed because of a suspicious package at the Dupont Circle station....
The transit agency says the Dupont Circle station closed at 2:57 p.m. due to a suspicious package found on a train heading to Glenmont.
A rider saw the package and alerted officials via the intercom system on the train.
Metro Transit Police also closed down the Woodley Park and Cleveland Park stations for "logistical reasons," says Metro.
Special equipment was brought into the Dupont station so officials could detonate the suspicious package. Only papers and cardboard were found in the box....
After they closed the station, we walked to the Farragut North station, which was fortunately not too far away! But by the time we got back to UM, it was too late for Shirley's class, so I had to cancel it. :-( However, most of the students went on to the Student Union, to Terp Zone, I think. They are indefatigable!
