I don't consider myself primarily clairsentient, but this is one of those incidents.
Sometime between November 5th to the 8th, 2007, my family and I were heading to a funeral home to plan my father-in-law's funeral. We were waiting at the first traffic light on Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue, but were under the CSX freight train bridge. There are 2 parallel train bridges at that location. The other is for the Metro commuter train.
This is some background on the elevated freight train bridges in that area. There are only 3. Two are over roads (at Burroughs Avenue & Eastern Avenue). The other train bridge goes over the Anacostia River.
The CSX train began to pass over us and I had one of the "panicky" gut feelings. It felt similar to an anxiety attack. I looked up through the front windshield to see which train it was. I wanted to get out of our car so badly. As far as I was concerned, the traffic light could not turn green soon enough. It did and we continued on to the funeral home. I was so relieved to get out from under there.
That Friday, November 9th, the CSX freight train derailed from its Anacostia River Bridge, sending 10 coal cars into the water. There were no injuries, thank goodness, but it did cause an environmental mess.
