The scary drilling and chipping work

It’s gotten to be full-on winter–frigid, short days.  And eyt the road work continues, now under spotlights before dawn.  The last couple of days have been rather frightening, as the direction of the labour seems to be to UNDO that which has been done.  Men are working at drilling and chipping and beating at the concrete used to seal one of the giant, upended culverts in front of Holy Cross Cemetery.

It’s been so long that the street’s been closed that when I got into a cab yesterday and announced my destination–along with the specific angle from which it could be most closely approached–the driver threw a waiting fee onto the metre…and I didn’t argue.
