First Snow of the Year

On Tuesday 6 January 2015 we had our first snow of the year. I took the bus to church that day. What a trip. I just did catch the #13 bus and when I got off that bus, the #40 was there and I caught it.

At this point it appears that I would be at church in plenty of time.  But it took 20 minutes to get from the Patterson Park Enoch Pratt Public Library to Wolfe Street, about three quarters of a mile away.  Apparently there was an accident between Wolfe Street and downtown and that tied up traffic.  As a result, we had six MTA buses within two blocks.  I was on the fourth bus at Wolfe Street.  You know that something is wrong when the #23 catches up with the #40 QuickBus.

When I take the #40 to go to church, I get off the very next stop.  QuickBus is a limited service bus.  In the same stretch, the #23 and the #20 make about five stops for the one stop that the #40 makes.

At one point I jokingly told either the driver or another passenger that I feel as if I were in a small town with nothing to do but to go downtown and watch the traffic light change colors. This went over the head of most people who heard it.  When I lived in Derry NH, I lived one block from the traffic light.  I absolutely love that town.  But I hate cold weather.

This shot and the next three were taken at 8:31, thus within one minute.

You can clearly see two buses here and there is a third one in the background.
