To my astonishment, despite having had only about four hours' sleep, I woke up just before the alarm, even though that was only 4 AM California time. Even more astonishing to me was that I was able to get fed, showered, and dressed within an hour.

Cheryl is going into Chicago today, so I'll drop her off at the train station on my way to my office. The Metra commuter rail system here has some express inbound trains that put Caltrain's "Baby Bullet" expresses in a bad light. Imagine a Caltrain run that originating at San Jose, stopping at Santa Clara and Mountain View, then running non-stop to San Francisco 3rd & King. But OTOH, Cheryl doesn't necessarily want or need to catch that express train, because, particularly as it is now snowing, having an extra 40-plus minutes on the train, warm and dry, with a book she's enjoying reading, isn't such a bad thing.
