Wet ride

Took a ride to St Albans yesterday, lovely ride on the way there. Nice weather, courteous passes by car drivers, a few nods and hello's from other roadies. Not so on the way back. 5 minutes after I set off for the return journey, the rain started, and started and started. For the whole ride back it rained non-stop, really heavy rain with a bit of thunder and lightening for good measure. I was completely soaked when I got back. Still enjoyed it though. :)

Busy day

Was expecting a quiet day today as I was supposed to be on a spare duty. Got into work and was told about an earlier derailment of an engineering train so the Piccadilly line was suspended. Spent the first 4 hours of my duty on the platform assisting my staff in detraining trains and explaining to hundreds of customers alternate routes to their destinations. This would have been easier if people took of their headphones. I was then about to commence my meal break when we were informed about a one under at a neighbouring station so I went down to the next station to assist. Unfortunately the person was pronounced extinct and it took a while for the ERU and the police to hand the track back to us.

It's that time of year again where we have to renew our operational licences. So for the next 3 days I will be doing classroom based training. On a side note I was visited by the puncture fairy thus morning so had to take the tube.
