Waiting for the bus

In Covidland, riding public transit has been an experience. At first it was a hot mess, but the T sensed up and realized they had to start to control crowds. One of the buses I ride is a very busy route (well all of the buses through my town are high ridership regardless), and the crowds in non-covid times are just insane. Lots of pushing N shoving. Its annoying.

But since the T is trying to limit crowding, they’ve been far more flexible with adding buses to avoid crowds. Unfortunately, it causes lines like this:

Help my neighbors in Chelsea, MA

Currently the town I live in, Chelsea, Massachusetts is the hardest hit city in the town by COVID19. Not only are we the most hit with cases so far (as of 4/22), we’re also a town of service people, so many of my friends and neighbors are out of work. Lots of hard working folks. Sometimes I feel like I’m one of the few on my street that is still employed.

This is picture from my friend Matt Frank who took a photo of the line to get food.

And the link yesterday (4/21/2020) to the Chelsea Collaborative (courtesy of WBZ):

We won’t be able to sustain feeding people without outside help. I’ve given some, and plan to give more, but we need more help.

If you can give, please give to the UnitedWay;’s One Chelsea Fund here:
