Slow going

Tonight’s commute lasted over an hour and a half, and this was via mass transit.

It all started when the flakes began falling from the sky.

Traffic was extremely thick and slow. Pace Shuttle Bug buses run in traffic, so the heavier-than-usual traffic made the shuttles late. The train was late due to some sort of mechanical issue. All of this tacked an extra 45 minutes onto what is normally a consistently-timed transit commute.

Thankfully, being a snow passenger is much less stressful than being a snow driver. The carpal tunnel syndrome wolf remained caged, the Patience-O-Meter registered abnormally high readings, and nobody was endangered when I fell asleep in the middle of the trip.

Up for Wednesday: Back to the roads? Or will I win the Metra parking lot(tery)? Can’t wait to find out.
