Every Tuesday and Thursday as I drive my ass down to the 24 Hour Fitness in Ooo-lathe at 5:15 in the freaking morning, I see several trains between the I435/I35 interchange and the Santa Fe exit, where I get off. The trains are long, usually...seeming to be 100's of cars long, I mean. On Tuesday, I saw 4 of them, on Thursday there were only 3 that I noticed.
They all are pulling cars overfilled with what looks like coal.
I don't know why, but it kind of surprises me that there is such a massive need for coal to be shipped anywhere any more that there would be so many traincars full of the stuff possibly every day of the week heading to their eventual destination.
I need to look up what coal is still used for, because it's interesting to me.
My trainer and I are also interested in the way that dustbunnies form under beds, and I actually went looking for a time-lapse video of dustbunnies forming yesterday when I got into the office. I didn't find any, but I did learn what makes a dustbunny happen. And can I just say: Ew.
Anyone else doing their homework for discussion topics at the next meet up? Because if I'm the only one, we might have quite the raging par-tay on our hands, folks...
