You might want to find another way to get to work this morning. A Muni train derailed at Castro Station, inducing a series of delays that will make for a nightmarish commute around San Francisco today.

MTA Spokesman Paul Rose tells reporters today that  "It's going to be slow, it's going to be crowded."

He had no details about what caused the derailment, only that trains at the Embarcadero are backed up and that outbound trains are not moving while inbound trains are just chugging along.

Happy Friday, everyone.
