My favorite part about spending Christmas in D.C. is the freakish quiet. No lines, no traffic, and the small number of people you do see on the street are exceptionally friendly. We're in this together!
It's a rare Friday morning commute when you can stand in the middle of 11th Street near Metro Center and not see a single car coming in either direction.
More good news for anyone planning to make their way downtown this morning: the Department of Public Works has gone ahead and suspended enforcement of parking meters, residential parking, rush hour lane restrictions, and towing both today and Saturday, Dec. 24 and 25. (Those same rules will also apply Friday and Saturday, December 31 and January 1, FYI.)
