Yesterday, the new Amtrak station opened up in Stanwood, WA. As I was standing on the platform awaiting the arrival of the train, I couldn't help but notice the bright yellow line with the warning to "Stand Back of Yellow Line". There were actually two bright yellow lines painted on the platform.
I couldn't believe how some people either couldn't read the safety warning or chose to ignore it. The Amtrak workers on site had their work cut out. Let me tell you, when a train comes roaring by as a freight train did while waiting, it almost seemed too close even behind the yellow line.
Regardless, I decided to let this be my re-entry back into the Mellow Yellow Monday meme. I've been away from the blogosphere for the most part for a couple of months and it's time to get back on board.
