But of course there is no precedent for such a thing, so I got on the subway anyway. We sat in the station for about 10 minutes and then the conductor came around and said that all the trains in the city had been stopped. I feel so fortunate that A) someone was wise enough to halt the trains (i'm sure no one thought the building would come down and B) I am always late
