I decided to take a train upstate to visit my parents this weekend in order to avoid the high cost and delays associated with air travel. I arrive at the station this morning for my return trip to NYC to discover the train is delayed 25-35 minutes. The booth attendant has no other information and gives one word responses to my questions.
I go to buy water. Check the screen. The train is now delayed 35-45 minutes due to "freight traffic." Aren't trains on a schedule? I tell my dad and his girlfriend to go home and return to take a picture of the screen for this post. New ETA: TBD.
Infrastructure colapsing. Intercontinental travel increasingly difficult and uncertain. Anyone want to move to an isolated mountain community with me and start our own tiny dropout Utopia?
