Snow and Deja Vu

Posted on February 22nd, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Live Blogging On the Subway

So apparently today’s snow was the most snow the city has seen in two years. For some reason, that makes it sound like some massive amount of snow…as if it were a blizzard or something.
The truth is we just haven’t had much snow at all in the last few years. This year has [...]

Did people leave their homes and offices in a panic today?
I saw no less than 2 hats and 3 different gloves on the sidewalks and subway stairs today. People were clearly fishing around for things in their pockets and bags not realizing they were dropping them.
Why couldn’t it be $100 bills instead?
Sent from my [...]

Let’s just get right to it. Do the French tourists win this game? Is it even a contest? I think so.
In my book, the French tourists are the most obnoxious touristists in town. I can’t even think of another group that even comes close.
I say this as I stand near a group of [...]

Well, it seems that the meteorologists have scared off commuters this morning.
Not quite sure why. All you had to do was look out your window to see the massive “swing and a miss” they pulled last night.
I don’t even think it got below 40 degrees!

Lately, I’ve been working on a [...]

Takes forever to come at the peak of rush hour.  The person in charge of the line, or in charge of the dispatch tower must be on vacation this week.  There must be a substitute in there.  Why?
They’ve been using the “skip ahead [...]

It wasn’t that bad. Seriously. It was actually pretty cool, but then again, I didn’t have the typical experience that most revelers have.
I was actually working in Times Square. That night, more than ever, the value of the press pass became all the more apparent to me. I could walk around wherever I wanted [...]

Well it is usually this time of the year that I run out of Christmas cheer.  It’s about this time that I am ready to kill people on the subway.
Most of it has to do with obnoxious tourists and their 25 shopping bags cramming into the train cars.
See if you can relate to this scenario.  [...]
