Rush Hour

This is rush hour in Burlington.  It's a wee bit less crowded then in Toronto, or actually most major cities.  I love that l can get around without all the crazy drivers.  Small towns are great for the ease of commute.

And this is a Saturday in Toronto, not even rush hour.  Yuck!   At the best of times it's busy, throw in an accident and everything slows to a crawl.  Now that winter is approaching commuting time will lengthen dramatically.

As l drove on Spadina Ave yesterday in Toronto, l saw a row of trees in the middle of the road.  I guess this is the city equivalent of trees growing on the side of a mountain in rock.  A thought that ran through my mind was "how does this tree get enough water to survive", it's surrounded by concrete.  The only opening is the 8" by 8" square that you see.
