  The long tube escalators!
by Jenniflower

In bad weather the transport system is always affected. Whether it is snow, wind, lightening... all bring with them delays and suspensions of sections/whole lines/stations.

This can be quite frustrating when all you want to do is get home after a long, hard day at the office.. and then you find you have to rethink your way home!

Last week on the Bakerloo line turned 100... (congrats!) but with that came a storm and some lightening touched down quite close to the track in Vauxhall, which rendered trains there helpless.

This meant that Waterloo was running with HUGE delays and cancellations! Of the 19 platforms they have, there were only two with trains, both over half an hour late already... so I gathered I wouldn't be able to squash my way onto one of those... and had to rethink my way home.

Thankfully I do have an alternative!

Such is life when commuting, but one never seems to come to grips with it, as we rely on it so.
