Back in Providence

After putting off packing and then staying up more or less all night to do it, I got up at 6:30 this morning to catch the train. I can't tell you how many times I thought how much nicer trains are than planes.... Cutely enough, a bunch of preschoolers from Kewanee took the train with their parents to the next stop, Princeton, where they got off the train and were met by Santa, then boarded a bus to go back. Apparently they do this each year. It was adorable.

In Chicago, I then took the el out to O'Hare where I grabbed some McDonald's and bought a Daily Herald to kill time until my flight. (Interesting article: apparently a guy in southern Illinois pled guilty to one count of flag desecration for burning a flag. Ugh.) The flight was delayed but uneventful until the landing, which was in a driving snowstorm onto a tarmac with 1" of snow. Smooth anyway. I caught a bus downtown and then waited for a bus up the hill which was 25 minutes late---I could've walked it faster---and now I'm here. More later.
