Morning. Sunshine gleaming from rooftops and glass under a flawless eggshell blue sky outside my window
...looks like you are in store for s nice Sunday, mid 70s and ssith sun and some clouds.
Meanwhile, Summer and the sun finally said their adieu for the year Thursday night. Woke up yesterday to cold drizzle which actually became somewhat heavy by late afternoon and evening. The wet stuff will be with us for a while now along with cool if not downright cold temperatures.
However, we did have a very nice (and unusually long) summer this year which makes up for the past two years where it lasted maybe about three to four weeks at best.
Surprisingly not a lot of traffic mishaps like I was expecting due to oil residue building up on the roadway for nearly three months since the last significant rainfall (and people driving stupid).
Buses were all off schedule and more crowded than usual though. Let two go by as I really didn’t feel like standing all the way home (better to stand on solid pavement waiting than on a moving, lurching bus with people pressing up against and pushing their way around).
Schedules were so messed up, that after I passed on boarding the second bus, there was another one for the same route only a couple blocks behind (which was almost empty). By the time we got off the transit mall, we were right behind the bus I let go by all the way to where I get off. Even though both buses would pull up to a stop at the same time, people would pile onto the first overcrowded one instead of the nearly empty one just behind it.
...transit commuters can be such “sheeple” sometimes.
