counting my blessings

there was a train crash outside of DC yesterday, on the metro line i take to/from work most days... apparently, a subway train plowed into the back of another one - 9 people have died and over 70 people have been injured... i have no idea how this sort of thing can happen - eric and i were glued to the tv last night at the sight of one train ontop of another... it just seems impossible... roads and subways lines have been shut down and my commute this morning took almost 2 hours... the train was so crowded, we were offloaded so i decided to walk the rest of the way - just wish i had worn better shoes! anyway, my thoughts and prayers are with the families involved in this terrible accident...

here's a shot of the two trains - see what i mean?!?!



and here's an idea of what the metro looked like this morning - the word 'chaos' doesn't even come close...



on a good note - at least i had a great spin class this morning...

happy tuesday...

The pictures look like something out of a movie. So surreal.

Glad you're okay.

wow! sad enough to see anywhere - but really scary if it is the line you normally use.

Oh Jodi. I'm so happy you weren't on either of those trains, but I do feel so deeply for the families and loved ones of those folks. :o(

Wow. That is absolutely terrible. How does something like that happen?

I am so glad that you are okay. I thought of you immediately when I heard the news.

you're the 2nd blogger I read that has talked about this. Of course, it was all over the news, but I didn't really think about "knowing" people in the area. So glad you weren't on there!

Such a terrible story. Glad to hear you're ok. Commuting is never pleasant. Keep well.
