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.
