I am sorry for placing a picture of a sandwich at the top of this blog. It was a delicious sandwich that caused a number of comments. In fact, my students suggested I make them all sandwiches–or one giant sandwich that they could slice hunks off of. It’s a good idea that I just can’t make happen. It also isn’t Today’s Perfect Moment.
Today’s Perfect Moment is that I can finally see signs of progress on The Construction. Finally, a brand new lane is finished and work on the stops can start in earnest. For too long, I saw people working, but I couldn’t really be sure any progress was being made. Nothing seemed complete, or anywhere near complete. Now, some sidewalks are done, and some traffic signals have been put up.
I don’t know if it will get finished before the snow starts to fall, but at the very least I can see the shape it is all going to take.
Sadly, this morning my bus arrived late and it caused a knock on effect that saw the bus become extra-full. As a result, I couldn’t save my girlfriend a seat and had to endure a sharp elbowed sitting companion.
