Pardon us as we contemplate the Navy while staring in the Reflecting Pond North at the Newark City Subway light rail station in Branch Brook Station.

You can say the place flooded Monday morning and evening because of the heavy rain.

But the place flooded because the drains were clogged ... probably with cigarette butts from the ineffective no smoking ban on the NJ Transit platforms.

If you arrive on the weekend to see what's left of the famous cherry blossom trees blooming in Branch Brook Park and Belleville Park, you won't have to worry about riding on the light rail on weekends. Buses are provided ... for your convenience.
