Why the fuck does Metro Transit think that the appropriate response to adverse weather is to make me walk a mile in sub-freezing temperatures to get home from the bus, instead of the usual few blocks?

I've been home for nearly half an hour, and I can still feel the chill in my hands and face.

They do that to me every time there is a hint of ice. Admittedly, the hill they have to come down in pretty steep, and busses are pretty heavy, and I know I wouldn't want to drive a bus down Madison into Madison Valley with ice on the ground ... I just want them to let me know. If they deem it to be dangerous, they'll stop at Madison and 23rd. My bus stop is at Madison and 28th. That's diagonal, so it's close to eight blocks, but it's eight blocks I wouldn't really mind walking as long as someone came along and told me I had to. Especially if they came around and told me before I stood at the bus stop for half an hour, freezing.

Anyway, where I live, by Monday, there wasn't even a hint, wasn't even a wish or a glimmer or a vague idea of ice on the road. So why, oh why, didn't the 7:45 or the 8:00 bus come? Why did we have to wait for the 8:15 bus to show up at 8:20 to squeeze three busses worth of people on board? Grarrrr!
