Union Station still a mess...

I just got back to the office from Union Station. Anyone who's planning on riding the BNSF back home is in for a surprise. Nothing is getting in or out, there aren't any trains. Sh*t is still messed up from that collision this morning.

When I left 20 minutes ago there were at least 5 trains' of people crammed into the lower levels waiting for trains.

I should have driven today!

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I bleed GREEN

this means the other stations will be jammed with overflows hitching rides on other lines, ugh.

TDS, usually you annoy me with your posts, but that one was actually pretty funny. Well played.
