Flooding last night in Shaw, U Street, etc -- were you affected?

The rain last night was more severe than I thought -- I retweeted this picture taken by @AnaSantosPhoto of the tracks in the Shaw/Howard U Metro station under water, and WMATA announced that Columbia Heights, Shaw, and U Street stations were all closed (they have since reopened.)

There was also flooding in Bloomingdale, which has happened a few times this year, frustrating residents. And Children's Hospital, not far from us at about Irving and North Capitol, reported 3.5" of rain.

Luckily it seems our area wasn't hit as bad (being "Heights" and all) but still, closing Metro stations is no joke.

How was the rain for you? Any problems? Flooded basements etc?
