Living in town this year I’ve taken to walking onto campus. On Monday (November 8) the cycle path was flooded and completely impassable. I had left plenty of time to arrive for my 9.30 seminar; the obstruction meant that I had to extend my journey by 20 minutes and almost missed my class, not to mention I tried to walk through it and got completely soaked. Pardon me for not being able to afford a bus pass or bike.
How could the one route into the university be blocked because of a bit of rain? I’m fairly sure it isn’t all that rare in Lancaster. If the road had been blocked there would be uproar. Whoever is responsible for the walkways on campus is obviously dropping the ball somewhere and left a lot of people to be soaked.
