Not quite over yet


With Metro closed indefinitely, you too might want to try the poncho biking thing later today. (Mike DeBonis/The Washington Post)

Sandy’s still hanging around, and while the D.C. region might have been spared the vicious storm surge that’s devastated New York City, the National Weather Service is warning that the worst riparian flooding in more than 15 years is still to come. And, of course, the felled trees and widespread power outages will inconvenience residents for days. What you need to know: If it was closed yesterday, it’s almost certainly also closed today. And keep your eyes, as always, on Capital Weather Gang and the Post liveblog.
