mono derail

planning on visiting seattle and riding the monorail, my lovlies? better think again! this is the closest you'll be getting to the inside of it for a while.

inside the monorail

apparently, both trains collided last night, injuring two people.

i was wondering about the excess of sirens last night. and now i know.

also, i'm *REALLY* glad that the monorail expansion was finally shot down during the last vote. because between this crash and the seemingly constant fires on the trains (plus the fact that the new route would have gone from no where to no where with no stops in between), i just don't understand how it could have possibly been a viable form of transportation.

oh, and dear future seattle tourist? the 15 or the 18 bus will get you closer to the pike place market anyway.

the future is dead, poor groclette. :(

maybe the monorail will be running again by the time you get to visit seattle!

Of course, lots of Flickrers were out and about to document the monorail disaster:

i would have been one of those flickrers if i'd gotten my lazy ass out of bed. (i was taking a nap and the sirens woke me up.)
