From the Loudoun Times we learn that the second phase of the Silver Line is not impacted by delays in the first phase of the Silver Line, running months later than planned. When the second phase is completed, the metro will connect with Oak Hill at the Herndon-Monroe Park and Ride, which will be renamed.
The Dulles Metrorail Project was broken into two phases and each were separately contracted, so delays in one phase don’t necessarily translate to a delay in the other, because they are separate entities.
Phase 2 of the project is slated to begin spring 2014, with an expected completion date being some time in 2018.

This is one of those stories that is not funny but is kind of humorous anyhow because it is the Christmas season and songs about flying reindeer are on the radio and in the stores. And it happened locally in Ashburn. From the Washington Post:
Krystine Rivera had a bad day at work Thursday and was waffling over whether to head out for a seven-mile run. She decided to go for it.
And then her day, as she says, “got astronomically worse.”
She was hit by an airborne deer.
Rivera, 27, was jogging on a path adjoining Claiborne Parkway in Ashburn near the Dulles Greenway about 6 p.m. A 71-year-old woman from South Riding was driving a Toyota SUV on the road. And the deer — a buck — came from somewhere.
The SUV struck the deer, which sent the animal flying into Rivera, who remembers running one minute and then coming to in an ambulance as a paramedic told her he needed to cut away one of her favorite running shirts “because it had deer blood all over it.’’
“That’s when I knew a deer was part of this,” Rivera said Saturday.
The buck died at the scene. The driver was treated at Inova Loudoun Hospital and released, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

This is not too surprising given that the margin of votes between Democrat Boysko and Republican Rust was under a hundred votes for the 86th Virginia legislative district, which includes much of Oak Hill, Boysko is requesting that the state pay for the recount. From the Herndon Patch:
In the state-certified results, Rust garnered 10,389 votes to Boysko’s 10,335, separating them by just 54 votes, or 0.26 percent.
A total of 20,775 votes were cast in the 86th District, which includes Herndon and parts of Oak Hill and Sterling. Fifty-one votes were cast for write-in candidates.
