The other week, I was dropping off my pop at the Oxford Hotel downtown around 2 p.m. when I noticed that the clock was wrong at Union Station.
Or, better, the clock was right on at Union Station.
Yup. 4:20. At 2 p.m. in the afternoon. I'm not downtown much these days (I'm stuck changing diapers), so I'm not sure how long it's been like that. But I did go back the next day and snap another picture around 6 in the evening, and the clock was still at 4:20.
We haven't reached out to the construction company yet (renovations closed the facility in November 2012 and were supposed to last about a year and a half), mostly because we think it's hysterical and want to see how long it stays up.
Here's the first photo....
...and a shot from the next day: If anyone else has any information on how long it's been up or even possibly know the person who made it happen, drop us a note in the comments or shoot us an e-mail at email@example.com.
