Another time when Medford came in handy

It was raining this morning when I got to Medford station to catch the shuttle.  A moderate rain, nothing too heavy, but by the time the shuttle got to Ronkonkoma it was a proverbial cats-and-dogs storm.  Had I driven to Ronkonkoma today, I would have been completely soaked, especially given the fact that I don’t do the umbrella thing.  Medford’s close-in parking is very nice indeed on rainy days!  As for my actual trip into work, there’s not much to say.  The 6:56 to Flatbush Avenue was using M-7’s yet again, so I took the 7:19 to Penn.  Ridership was on the light side in the mid-consist car where I usually ride.  Few if any of the middle seats were occupied, and even some of the aisle seats on the 2-across side were taken only at Brentwood.  That was the case for the seat next to me, with a tall but fortunately slim man in his late 20’s taking it and not being any bother.  I spent most of the ride reading, and in a change from the usual I actually took an A train to Broadway-Nassau instead of the 2/3.  It wasn’t too bad, but even so I think I’ll stick with the 2/3.

The trip home couldn’t have been easier, with a quick trip on a 3 from Fulton to Penn.  The 5:22 to Ronkonkoma was uncrowded, just like the morning’s train, with the seat next to me being occupied by a 50ish woman as far as Wyandanch, and empty for the rest of the trip.  For some reason I couldn’t get much into reading, so I played several games of Tetris. One or two semi-decent ones, the others were mediocre.  Still, I was happy enough for a delay-free ride, and the wait for the shuttle went quickly.

Gym: other things to do tonight, so the gym had to wait.
