Posted on November 4, 2023November 4, 2023 by WillemSaturday 🍂 It’s the end of Daylight Saving Time— we have to turn back all the clocks back by an hour. After lots of rain and a thunderstorm this morning, the afternoon turned out to be calm and clear (61 °F/ 16° C). Here I am back from a walk down to Capitol Hill train station for a jaunt I had intended to do, up to U-District, but it was not to be. We first waited for 10 minutes on the northbound train to depart, during which the lights went out, and the ‘NORTHGATE’ display as the final destination changed to an IP address (IP.188.8.131.52 or something). Then an announcement came that there was mechanical trouble. The next northbound train will actually pick us up on the southbound track. The train that had a delayed departure had been full already, though. So when the next northbound train arrived (on the southbound track) also almost full of people, I decided the overcrowding wasn’t worth the trouble for me, and came back home. There is always tomorrow to try again.
