A Snow Day Walk Home

Look at 16th street outbound. A endless parking lot stretching north as far as camera or eye can see.

Traffic is so slow that I abandoned the warmth of the over packed bus for a mile walk home in the ice and snow.

Along the way, I’ve given the bad news to bus stops filled with expectant passengers: the buses are rare in number and already over capacity.

And now I do not walk home in snow alone.

    first, waited for 1st bus for 40 min. as the brain has frozen, asked the bus-driver for a bus-pass, instead of transfer. to his “what?” answered 3 times with confidence “a bus-pass!” then waited for the 2nd bus, and gave up soon in a sec as my legs joined my brain. then, ran for 40 miles (maybe a little overestimated) along the bus-trail and to the entertainment of those cleaning their drive-ways. so what? – i wear hills when it snows and like to run! then the transfer bus showed up, and i was ready to kiss my driver but there were too many people in! then i need to go to ER now to get my legs amputated. i am not kidding. i am not gonna go out till summer now!!! oh yeah, yesterday i thought dc is cute when it snows.
