OK, I have to give the Acela conductor credit. He’s hopping on the intercom periodically to give us updates. Five minutes ago: “We haven’t heard anything new, we keep calling but we have no further info on the ETA on a fix for this situation. In the meantime, if anyone can sing, please come to the cafe car.”
Just now (without intro, he just started talking): “In case you’re wondering, this is the first time ever that this is happening.” (You could hear laughter from the cafe car where he was making this statement.)
Non-rhetorical question: will I even get to NYC today?
