Thank you for being a valued customer

For the record, SO left Saturday from Emerville on the Zephyr, heading for NYC. Tuesday night three trains were stranded 100 miles from Chicago, with me getting voicemail: “Your train from Chicago to NYC has been cancelled. There are no other alternatives. Thank you for being a valued Amtrak customer.”  Wednesday all passengers went via bus to Chicago, stalled trains overnight apparently having heat and not much else. The overwhelmed staff in Chicago managed to find him a route through DC, with a sleeper, so he’s set to arrive tonight, only a day late. Doubt that flying would have been much better this time of year. Photo snagged from cbsnews.
