DC Traffic and Snow

I live 24.17 miles from work according to mapquest.com, and 24 miles from work according to my odometer. Of this commute, twenty-two miles is interstate driving. This commute usually takes me about an hour on my way home from work. Commuting to work is a different story since I leave before rush hour starts.

It snowed today. Not much, but significantly more than the weatherman had predicted. Taking into account

  1. Drivers in the national capitol region are by nature discourteous.
  2. The evening rush hour here is complicated further by a severe abundance of drivers and an antiquated freeway system.
  3. With very few exceptions, no one here knows how to drive in the snow.
  4. There were no preparations for the snow. (i.e. salting, sand, plows)

It took me four hours to make it home!

Living in a cultural and political center has many perks, but I cannot wait to move back to the mid-west.
