for those of you who’ve been trying to get through, i’m ok. i arrived at the tube station about 30 seconds after they closed down the central line, and because the buses were so crowded i decided to walk for a while. then a friend called me from the centre of town and said that things seemed to be getting worse not better and i should just go home. so i did.
once again, i’m feeling very fortunate. all of my friends and coworkers are fine (still waiting to hear back from one, but i’m optimistic), and i’m home and safe.
but man, it still really really blows.
