Well, what do you know? The Phillies didn't win the World Series, after all.

Instead, we got a different kind of horror--a transit strike. (The strike affects all of local transit except the rail lines, but has the effect of making the rails three times as crowded and horribly slow.) Monday, it took me twice as long as usual to get home. Tuesday, our train service was suspended. Not because of the strike, but because of a train car fire down the line. So I drove to work and back--a three-hour commute (as compared to my usual hour-and a half) for the day. Tonight, I waited nearly 45 minutes to get *on* a train, only to be ushered over to one that was nearly empty--while the lines of other passengers were shunted elsewhere.

Yes, it's Commuting Roulette. Pray you never have to experience it. The horror!
