City-wide, this was the worst day to commute in Chicago. I got on my 147 bus a little late today (about 6:40am), and was smooth sailing down Lake Shore until we got gridlocked at about Belmont. I work in the loop. And it was a dead stop at Belmont. Took an hour and a half to get to work. There was an incident at about North Ave.
But hey, at least I wasn’t on THAT bus (that is the incident I was talking about).
That is literally right where I sit everyday too.
The office, I was saying, “damn! I should have taken the train!”
There was a fire-related incident on the train this morning as well.
The picture above is all my co-workers wishing they took the bus.
