Another Snow

On the afternoon of Wednesday 4 March 2015 almost everybody starting shutting down for a big snow storm. We still had snow and ice on the streets from the previous storm. Everybody ran out of salt. I had plenty of salt at the beginning of the winter and I also ran out of it.

That afternoon I received a call from Inspector Banks of the Baltimore City Police Department and when I looked on my calendar, nothing was there, so I scheduled to go in to do my application for the Police Chaplaincy.  Later I realized that I had an IMA meeting scheduled.  But, thank God, it was cancelled the next morning.

So I took the bus and subway to the Police Headquarters building.  I was going to take the #5 bus, but the #35 came first and a man suggested that I just take the subway.  That worked perfectly.

The photographs on this page are from my trip to and from the police headquarters.  After I finished my application process, I had wonderful conversations with Officer Grear and Det. Smith at the front desk.  At one point I had my hand in my pocket and she mentioned that when people come in, she often asks them to take their hand out of their pocket.  This is a safety thing.  She was not referring to where my hand happened to be, but it made me think and I'm glad that she did.

I shared with her about the time I was in Crestwood NY and stopped by the police there because I fit the description of a suspect of a bank robbery that occurred within the hour.  I look upon that incident with fond memories. 

When I left the building, I was concerned about how long I would have to wait for the bus and I did not want to take the regular #5.  Almost as soon as I got to the corner, my bus came.
