Yesterday on the way to work, it was slow going. I take the bus downtown to work and getting downtown was fine. But once we got there, the traffic just stopped. All the snow we had this weekend was still around downtown. They had plowed the streets, but there wasn't anywhere for the buses to drop people off because all the snow was on the streets. So instead of three buses dropping people off at a time, only one could.
I was only delayed about 15 minutes this morning. Other people had a much worse time getting to work.
When I left, there was the same issue. Snow was everywhere. This is where we usually stand to wait for the bus:
There's a heat lamp in there that we couldn't use and it was filled with snow. This was, of course, the problem at all the bus stops and slowing things down like it had in the morning.
The buses were running really late. I got on a different bus than I had intended (because the one I was looking for was so late and we had somewhere to be). It was standing room only, but I was freezing and didn't care. I actually had a nice man give me his seat and even had a woman offer hers as well. It was so nice of them and I was happy to see that there are people that still do those things for pregnant women.
And we made it to our destination on time. All is good in the world.
not Monday Tuesday!
