Looks like today the honeymoon is over. The Metra train from Lombard to Chicago was over an hour late. In a moment of wisdom, Metra decided not to charge the angry, waiting riders. Still… that’s a lot of time to waste at a train stop. Can someone say suck.
The worst part is that I was supposed to meet a buddy for dinner to celebrate his new job. Since I didn’t know how long the train would be I called it off. We rescheduled for next week.
Then my very cool bike decided today to have a weird problem. The latch that keeps the folded part together while riding decided to loosen. Fortunately, it stayed together enough for me to get home without much fuss. I was able to fix the problem when I got home tonight (I hope). Fingers crossed for the ride tomorrow.
