I think I shall never see, a thing as trolley-unfriendly as a tree

Yes, another tree has taken out the Riverside line, this time by having the temerity to fall on the overhead wires near Longwood, sparking a brush fire. Massive bustitution and angst result.

Apparently not wanting to be left out, the C line got itself shut as well when an out-of-service trolley derailed at St. Mary's, Channel 7 tweets. More massive bustitution and angst result.

Some riders managed to get caught in both messes. Phil R. tweets:

First my D train was rerouted, then they told everyone going to Reservoir to take the next C train, which just sat there.

He says it took him two hours to get home.

I had to memorize Joyce Kilmer's 'Trees' in grammar school in the 70s. Damn hippie teachers.

Kidlet just finished her final year at the Joyce Kilmer School, where they never had to memorize or recite that poem. Hmm, then again, I bet kids at the Mozart School don't have to perform a requiem.

A billboard as lovely as a tree ..."
