After a brief respite where the trains actually ran yesterday morning, Sounder is yet again grounded through the weekend. The Jan. 3rd morning trips were the first North Sounder runs since December 17th, according to spokeswoman Kimberly Reason.
The previous seasonal record was 70 canceled trips in the winter of 2010-2011. This winter we’ve annihilated that mark, with 122 canceled trips and more than 2 months to go. It’s not your imagination; it really is worse than usual.
