… word on the street from the non-couch bound members of the household is that the bouncies and celebrations were fun (lion dancing at Othello station! Free hot dogs and Ethiopian food in Columbia City!), but the half hour lines to ride and the intense crowding were less so (standing room only on trains this afternoon).

The free rides and festivities continue tomorrow, and you can read The Seattle Times coverage of today’s opening madness here.

*sniff* Seattle is getting all grown up!
