The venues are almost all ready and transport infrastructure is being improved, even George Square is looking much better.
The organisers are confident the work to ensure a fabulous Commonwealth Games is on track, but the city still has to function during the Games period.
People still have to get to work, hospitals have to be staffed, bins collected and streets policed, just as they are before and after the Games.
So, planning events and work done to anticipate and co-ordinate a response to the problems, which are likely to arise, is not only welcome, but necessary.
The Games has the support of the city, the response to the call for volunteers and demand for tickets proves that, and the people know patience will be required as Glasgow copes with the huge influx of athletes, officials and spectators across the city.
Also, it is expected that the disruption to city life will be managed to the extent that it is as minimal as possible.
This will allow everyone concerned to get on with enjoying the greatest sporting spectacle ever to take place in this city.
