6/22/06- Steam Grates

Occassionally as I walk around the city I am lucky enough to have a random blast of smelly hot air hit me in the face.

Who decided to put these in the middle of sidewalks? Why couldn't they just be in the middle of the street where the steam would hit nothing but the bottom of the cars and perhaps a few unsuspecting motorcyclists. My least favorite location for these grates is corners. Often I find myself waiting for a light to change so I can cross the street and all the sudden, WHAM! I get hit with a steam bath.

The worst part about this steam is the wierd smell. If it was just normal steam I wouldn't mind. Hell, some people pay to get sit in a steam. This steam however is more of a combination of heat and garbage. Theres nothing like walking down the street half asleep on your way into work in the morning and getting a waft of trash in your face.

Steam grates: I hate you.

P.S. for the original of the photo please visit Alan De Smet's webpage.

If a steam grate blows up a hot woman's dress and lifts it up, would you hate it then?
