Clearly this is an inside joke from before I joined, so would it be imprudent for me to ask what it is?

I attempted to quote the whole exchange but the new software  seems to limit previous multi quotes in one post. I guess. So, basically start from here and read the next 11 posts.

This cancellation worries me.  I chose Amtrak to get from Washington to Fort Lauderdale on December 26th because I thought if there were weather issues it would be a better alternative than flying or driving.  Now, I have another travel concern about which to worry.  (I do have travel insurance for my trip/cruise, but I really don't want to file a claim after missing my ship.)

Thanks. Inadvertently started another post, and get the idea AMTRAK communication isn’t always ... reliable. Supposed to be on 92 to NYC on Wednesday from Tampa. Based on the 4 p.m. statement, it is not canceled, yet they’ve canceled the Southbound 91 from NYC departing on both Monday and Tuesday. I find this mysterious, and as I was told: it may or not be running.

Thanks for the link. Helpful this morning trying to figure out whether to drive into Asheville for work....

Unusual pattern for around here: In the mountains west of Asheville, near Tennessee, we usually get more snow than A'ville. This time it's the other way around. Black Mountain (just east of Asheville) reportedly had 17" as of 8PM last night. Up here we've got about half that. Looks like the north-central part of NC and south-central part of VA got the worst of it.

Why is this mysterious? The 92 of Monday turns to 91 of Wednesday. There is no consist available in NY to run a 91 on Tuesday. Tuesday’s 91 has no impact on Wednesday’s 92 out of Tampa. It turns to 92 of Thursday. The consist for Tuesday’s 92 is presumably stabled in Hialeah over this outage.
