BART congeals


The dry announcement reports -- system back on schedule after delays. As I snapped this, downtown train platforms were just beginning to clog up at rush hour. That's what happens when a hub goes down at the wrong moment.

I'm not complaining. BART mostly works quite painlessly to move a lot of people with only minor friction. But scenes like this remind one how sensitive the system is to local failures.

You are blessed to have BART -- many cities have much less reliable public transportation. Ohio sucks in that dept.
