You wouldn’t think that rain could cause so many problems on the subway, but it does. Apparently, the 2 and 3 trains are taking it in the rear today especially well.
This morning, there were downtown issues on the express tracks. This evening, it seems like they were never resolved, or just got worse.
The part that really sucks is that the rain brings more people into the subway. If there’s a quick storm, then there really isn’t a noticable difference. But if it rains for more than half a day, the subway gets slammed with people.
Thousands of people decide to go for the subway instead of walking. Unfortunately that means a lot more single stop riders. They jump on for only one stop and then get off. It causes insane holdups in the doorways. Above ground, it becomes impossible to get a cab, so those people come down here to. Then there’s the buses…fugetabowdit.
There’s nothing like being pressed up against a soaking wet stranger. Mmmm
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
