Blame Canada

pas de train de pétrole qui explose
The Lake County exploding oil-train once again failed to explode yesterday.

In Barrington this time,
residents and commuters experienced a "perfect storm" during last night's rush hour as a Canadian National train stalled on the tracks for more than 30 minutes due to mechanical issues, blocking all four Village crossings in the 5:00 p.m. rush hour timeframe. Traffic was unable to move in any direction, causing backups throughout town and into our surrounding communities.
The stoppage occurred on the heels of tariffs and other trade barriers imposed on Canada by legitimate businessman and US President Donald J Trump. One knowledgeable Canadian said: "This was no coincidence. If our trains cannot get back to Canadian soil we have to park them somewhere. Capisce?"

Your LakeCountyEye will keep you apprised when further developments warrant.
