I think sometimes we forget just how remote certain parts of the country are, and that if something like this goes wrong, there is often not much we can do to get people out right away!

A very bad year for the Coast Starlight.

Tunnel collapse in June. forest fire in August (which truncated my train to Sacramento), and now a freak Oregon blizzard!
