It took me an hour and a half to get in to work today. Normally I make it there in about half an hour, sometimes less. It took me 20 minutes to get from my house to the ramp to I95. It took me 40 minutes to get from the ramp to I95, onto I495. That's a distance of about half a mile. It took me 30 minutes to get the rest of the way to the office, a distance of about 8 miles. There weren't even any accidents, as far as I could see or hear on the radio.
Things of note:
Minivan was in lane for ramp to 495. Had left-turn signal on. Looked like she was changing lanes to the left. I went to go around her on the right, she accelerated to block me. <censored>
18-wheeler wrecked on ramp from 495 (inner loop) to Eisenhower Ave. I was on outer loop. Traffic on outer loop sucked, traffic on inner loop was going at speed. Not fair!
Stalled 3 times going <3 mph up ramps/hills, in stop-and-crawl traffic.
