RJMan, is was terribly rainy yesterday and the same thing happened to a girl I know - she slipped pretty hard when coming out of the metro station (mind you she was wearing large heels). I also took the metro later that night (and decided to wear some rubber soled Geox's just in case) and even with rubber soled shoes on it was really slippery. It was really strange because it was so wet that it actually looked like it rained INSIDE the metro station.
