50 Shades of Grey

Cassel and Hopkins, your fearless editors.

Cassel and Hopkins, your fearless editors.

I was on the way from Scout HQ in Somerville to East Cambridge one day in December during that week of considerable rainfall. What should have been a few feet of lovely snow turned out to be a torrential downpour due presumably to climate change’s grasp on our souls. Normally I’m pretty immune to inclement weather. I’ll spare you the, “When I was a kid, I walked uphill to school barefoot in the snow,” story, but slap a pair of waterproof boots on me and I am good to go.

But this time, I broke. From the time I left my house to the time I got home, the clouds kept weeping. And at the peak of my misery, an MBTA bus so graciously hit me with a six-foot-high wall of water. Thanks, MBTA.
