I'm not on that one, either!

From AP:
An Amtrak train derailed after running into a pickup-sized boulder, authorities said. Six people were injured, none seriously.

The California Zephyr struck the 12-by-12-foot boulder late Tuesday just west of Grand Junction, Mesa County sheriff's spokeswoman Susan McBurney said.

The train was en route from Chicago to suburban Oakland, California, with more than 100 people on board.
That's the second Zephyr to derail in four days! My train being late by three hours to California, and the one being six hours late on the way back--doesn't seem like a big deal anymore.

I'll have to check and see if I got a picture of the boulder.
