I'm Ba-aack!

Greetings, all!

A couple of posts ago I mentioned that I had undergone some major changes in my life. I won't bore you with the sordid details, but after a few rough months, I'm in a better place. I'm currently residing in Portland, Oregon and continuing in my work as a bus driver, but now for the local transit authority, TriMet.

I now feel able to resume some of my previous on-line activities, and am eager to begin posting about my new city and what it's like to go from driving for a small, semi-rural transit system to driving for a very large and busy one. Of course, with COVID-19, the city and the system are not very busy at all. I was just starting to get used to maneuvering in heavy traffic on narrow streets, and then everything changed. It will be a bit of a shock to my system if and when things return to normal.

Right now TriMet is dealing with drastically reduced ridership, and is having to make some cut backs in services, so next week I will have a different work schedule. At least I'm still working.

In other news, I am currently involved in a fun writing project with some of the Infomaniac Bitches and other bloggers from around the globe. It's called "A Write Panic". We take random turns writing new posts for an evolving story. Check it out, won't you?
