Flash ahead to today. I could have taken the 12:35 train, but instead i chilled at home, had lunch and stuff. I left at 2:15 to get a 2:30 train. As i approached the station i saw a train pull into the station. My watch (which like all the clocks in my house is synched to government time) said 2:26. I was not happy. I called home because that is what one does when one misses a train. The machine picked up because someone was using the phone lines and i hung up and realized that i could just walk home since i do live only 12 minutes away. So i did. And i sat at home and read Body Wars before leaving in plenty of time to make my 4:29 train. I arrived at South Station Bus Terminal at 5:05 but the screens with all the departures only went to 5:00 and i couldn't find anyone who could tell me where my 5:15 bus was boarding until, 5:15, at which point the bus had left. So i got a 6:15 bus. Then i waited outside in the cold for about 10-20 minutes at Springfield waiting for the Northampton/Amherst/UMass bus. I finally got home home around 9:30.
From what i heard, i wasn't the only one who had traveling issues this weekend though.
