On Wednesday they finally got the Silver Line (train) running again – it had not been running as they were worried about the 3rd rail being an issue with all the snow, and no-one wants to be sitting out there in a powerless train! So, off to work I went on Wednesday but once I arrived at the station it was pretty apparent I wasn’t going to be walking far!
No side-walks visible but in the typical way of this car-centric society the road was nicely cleared; two lanes each way. (That’s a commuter parking lot on the right, also nicely cleared)
I didn’t relish climbing those impressive snow-mountains at the “walk” signs – for starters my boots are only calf-high – and walking on the road goes against my survival instincts… luckily I have a friend in the office who came & picked me up.
It sucked to be the manservant though – he takes the bus – and this was one of his stops – that’s the bus shelter on the left (behind the advertising) and the timetable post on the right. The plows kept coming along just to make sure the wall of snow stayed in place…
Then to cap off a bad week there was a fire in our “local” – apparently things got a bit hot in the kitchen:
Glad we’re back to 40, 50 and 60 degree temperatures this week!
