Swept Away


We’ve got a variety of janitor closets here in the elevated station.  They are where one usually finds most of the implements and cleaning products for house mouse cleaning duties or whatever mess needs to be addressed.

You have your “dry” closets where trash bags and such are kept, which are part of a pair of closets at the upwind end of the A1 and A4 berthing wings.  {Note: Those brooms shed more straw than the stuff they actually sweep up off the floor.}

Their counterparts are the “wet” closets right across the berthing vestibule from the previous closets.  These have a mop sink and sometimes even a mop bucket and mops.  Score!

The B1 berthing wing has the smallest and least ergonomic closets, which sport a mop sink and inward swinging doors (not so convenient, as you have to hold the door open with your posterior while filling/emptying mop buckets).

The B2 wing has two other closets, both with mop sinks.  The one on the first level is pretty basic.

However, the one on the second level is the Pole version of a Presidential Suite janitor closet with a mop sink, wash basin, and one of the highest toilets off the floor in the station.  This is also where we’re supposed to hose down people that might have gotten injured with nasty stuff on them, so we don’t take them to the clinic and contaminate our healthcare facility.  How’s that for station trivia?

Thanks for the look around the station. I'm still peeved that I didn't get the chance to see the new facilities after my time under the dome.
