If last week's Tube strike wasn't bad enough, this time we've got floods and thousands of travelling football fans too.
West Ham have agreed a deal to sell Upton Park to a developer once the club have completed their move to the Olympic Stadium in 2016.
The father of a West Ham fan who was pictured crying during his side's FA Cup loss has told ITV News his son is now "an even bigger fan."

You can't get near a team when they play like that. People will think they haven't tried.
They tried but their best wasn't good enough with the quality and talent of the players they have got.
We have to get our heads up and our shoulders back and our chest out, and start believing that we are going to do better - starting with Cardiff.
Sam Allardyce has vowed to fight on after Manchester City piled on the misery for his beleaguered West Ham side. Man City thrashed West Ham 6-0 in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final at the Etihad Stadium.
The London club were beaten 5-0 by Sky Bet Championship side Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup last weekend. They now sit 19th in the Barclays Premier League.
Allardyce said: "It is life isn't it when you are not doing well - you get stick as a manager and I am getting stick at the moment. That is the way goes, that is the way this job is you take it on the chin and get on with it.
"We are not the first team to get beaten here by many, many goals and we won't be the last having seen Manchester City through this season. But you cannot keep losing football matches, that is for sure, as a manager.
"You cannot think it will be allowed to continue. I don't want it to continue, that is for sure."
Former footballer Thomas Hitzlsperger has said that diver Tom Daley revealing he was in a relationship with a man helped in his own coming out.
"It really helped me to see that other professional sports people were acknowledging their sexuality," he told the Guardian's Raphael Honigstein.
"I read about John Amaechi, Gareth Thomas and Tom Daley. They weren't footballers but the fact that they went public gave me the feeling that I was not alone.
"I began to think that I could help other footballers who might be in the same shoes, so that they could see that here's someone who was even an international.
"I wanted to encourage them, the way that those guys and Robbie Rogers encouraged me."
Hello everyone! All these messages about my news, I am overwhelmed from this and I can't say thank you enough times!
Looking forward to interviewing Thomas Hitzlsperger for Football Focus this week. A man, hopefully, paving the way for others to follow.
Gay rights group Stonewall said, "Congratulations to former Aston Villa player Thomas Hitzlsperger who has revealed that he is gay":
Some Footballers Are Gay. Get Over It! http://t.co/sob12vuWVM
I'm coming out about my homosexuality because I want to move the discussion about homosexuality among professional sportspeople forwards.
I've never been ashamed of the way I am.
Just picture 20 men sat around a table together drinking - you've just got to let the majority be, just as long as the jokes are halfway funny and the talk about homosexuality doesn't get too insulting.
In England, Germany or Italy, homosexuality is not taken seriously as an issue, at least not in the dressing room.
Former West Ham, Aston Villa and Germany international midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger has announced he is gay. The 31-year-old, who ended his playing career in September due to persistent injuries, told Germany's Die Zeit newspaper that now was "a good time" for him to reveal his true sexuality.
QPR player Joey Barton has tweeted:
Thomas Hitzlsperger has shown a lot of courage today. Sad times when people have to wait till they retire from their chosen profession...
...before the feel other people will judge them solely on who the human being is. Shame on all of us as a society.
