Geez, it is not even Halloween and they are already dumping 7 train closures on us. It keeps getting earlier and earlier every year, might it be due to global warming? Nah, probably just aging as these old rails need lots of nursing. For you newcomers, this is an annual event in LIC and has been for a long, long time. It is not just, nor should one ever expect it to be, a one year project or something that actually gets completed. Worse, the trend recently has been for a double dip: a fall season and a winter season. My recommendation is to plan appropriately: Green Bay this weekend, Pittsburgh for the Cowboys next weekend, the Chiefs at …finishing with New Orleans for the Superbowl -> Aspen, South Beach, Gstaad, and a month in St Bart’s for the winter track work, that should do the trick.
