 I am painting my nails right now. I always feel nicer when they're all turquoise happy shiny and such. So since I can't draw with these drying, blog time!

 I have a story. Recently it snowed again here, and with the snow come complete and utter bus route destruction. I depend on those buses to get to school.  Bus number 1 doesn't run when a certain local college closes, and said college always seems to close when it snows. There goes that bus option! Bus number 2 only runs early morning and late evening. I happened to sleep through that one, so there goes that bus! Bus 3 is my final option to get to school. So hair wet from a shower, (I'm not very smart sometimes.) I made my way to the stop. About an hour later I decide I have had enough waiting in the cold. A bus I don't ride rolls up, and I ask how my route is doing.

  Not so good, apparently. The driver tells me all the buses seem to be getting backed up a ways ahead of this stop. She tells me I have a better chance at the closest transit center to find my route. So she agrees to take me there and off we go! This driver was a supreme driver. We ended up with a bus full of people that needed to get downtown all looking for  bus 3's route. I'm just numbering the buses, these aren't the actual route numbers. Onward, there is no bus 3 at the transit center! So the driver takes us around in search of the bus we all need. We get to a stop light further down the road, and we see something glorious roll by. The bus we all need.
 Unfortunately, it didn't hear the frantic honks this driver sounded at it, and continues down the road. In a show of SUPREME BUS DRIVING SKILL AND DUTY this driver tracked down that bus, intercepted it at one of it's stops and got us all where we needed to go. Bus lady, you will forever be awesome on snowy days. 

I wasn't late to class because my class was at noon anyway, aw ye. Though, in typing this I realize I lost my clear topcoat for my nails. Pfblblblt darn. Nails are dry though, back to art! >:V

The city's complete inability to deal with snow is ridiculous, especially considering that this has happened two years ago, so they've had plenty of time to develop a response. (I wasn't living here at the time, but I came through the airport during winter break, and it was odd to see the piles of snow around.)

Good thing we have some awesome bus drivers.

Yeah, I've learned this rather quickly! I've never really lived anywhere that snows until moving here, but agh. You would think they would be better at handling it. Ah well, hopefully they will learn soon.

Very good thing indeed. :)!
