I headed back home yesterday, taking an express bus that would get me home the fastest. Except that things slowed to a crawl and occasional standstill on one stretch of the highway due to numerous cars off in the ditches, thanks to blowing snow.
After we finally arrived, a half-hour late, I waited for the free shuttle bus to the downtown area. Normally it leaves within 10-15 minutes of a bus arriving, but 25 minutes later it still hadn’t left. And the bus we arrived on then left without acting as the shuttle, as it usually does, and there were no other buses in the terminal. I gave up and walked downtown, which only takes about 15 minutes anyway.
And after getting downtown, I got to the train platform just as the train I wanted arrived. But, I fumbled the coins as I was purchasing a ticket, and missed the door by seconds.
