Fastest Seattle to Boston transit ever

Flew on Alaska this morning. Departed on time. Comfortable seats. Good breakfast at airport. Slept on plane. Flight only took 4.5 hours. That is not a typo. Arrived 30 minutes early. Quick transfer to bus. Quick transfers from blue line to orange line to red line. Map says there is no traffic.

This has the potential to be the easiest commute home ever. But I don't want to jinx it so I will add the modifier "so far".

Of course I have had nightmare commutes in the past. Twice my dad went to the wrong subway station. Once it took hours to figure it out because he went to the other while I went to the first. And I think he had no cell phone. It was bad. Another time bad weather caused the red line to be closed and I ended up in the middle of nowhere and needed a bus and who knows what else. It was so traumatic I have blocked it from memory.

So I am keeping my fingers crossed.

It was also nice to land in daylight. Usually I take the Jetblue redeye but this time I took Alaska and that is the infinitely better choice even though you have a half day less at destination.

Okay that's all.
