Wednesday my 2 train crept at tortoise pace down to 34th St.--where it finally gave up completely. The reason? Heavy rains have caused the New York underground to flood. I ended up walking 12 blocks to catch another train and was lucky enough to ride the rest of the way down to work. My arrival time? 11am.
Others weren't so lucky. Since the entire subway system was affected, many New Yorkers showed up hours late to work, huffing and puffing and dripping wet.
I thought it would be a one time thing, but today the 2/3 line was down again. If this keeps up I'm gonna have to think about maybe getting a car.
