Busing

Today has started just a bit differently than a normal work day. And it is a work day. I know of many who have the day off. My sister, a teacher, which I am sure in turn drives many others to take a day off. My son has a pot luck at noon, and then they are dismissed. My daughter? Who knows.
Today is also different because I start with a morning meeting in Bellevue. Bellevue is between my home and office, so I opted to take the short route, and meet others from my office there. I will be relying on their kindness, however, to get me the rest of the way to work after the meeting.
The bus runs from fairly close, ~1/2 mile, to our house. I did beg a ride from Carl, solely based on the inclement weather we have been experiencing.
As I settled in for a 15 minute wait for the bus, the one before my planned departure arrived. So on I got, enjoying the not driving part. After a bit, we caught up with the bus before the one I was on.
They had increased the number of buses on this run when they added tolls to the bridge. I was wondering at the need, as my bus only had a half dozen or so riders. However, when we passed the bus in front of us when the stopped to let some passengers disembark, I could see that bus was packed.
Anyway, I got to my meeting super early, and have spent my time now, recounting this minor adventure in commuting.
I did try and snap a few of the sights along the way. Since I am doing this all from my phone, I have no idea what to expect.

    I didn’t get the day off at all! *grumble* In fact we work later on Wed. than on other days AND some idiot(moi) gave three sets of quizzes.

    The bridge looks VERY close to sea level. I guess it’s protected from storms like Sandy by Olympic Mountains. Happy T-day!
    Margaret, I did my grading last night, while we waited for our younger son to drive in from Purdue. He worked until 3:30.
    Either I made the math problems too hard, or the kids need more work. The pitfall of being a sub, is you’re never quite sure what is the right level for any particular grade. Also, what terminology they are using now. I suggested for the time problem that they used the “thingy with the hops”. “Oh, you mean the open number line.’ said one student. Then another student called it a different name. So, maybe I’m not the only one who doesn’t know the jargon. The reason I suggested they use that technique, is that otherwise, they try to subtract 4:35 from 6:00 and get 1 hour and 65 minutes!
