bad commute [Jan. 27th, 2011|02:18 am]
Doug Ayen
Just spent 10 hours getting home from work -- only 50 miles, but it appears that Loudoun county doesn't believe in deploying their snow plows until after the snow stops, rush hour or not. I must have passed 30 cars abandoned -- not on the side of the road, but just sitting there in the middle.

I was upset after my latest Metro experience trying to get home, but after hearing car&driver horror stories from this FrozenWatergate, I feel less upset (we still have no heat at home, but that's another story and actually unrelated to the super-sucky weather. Still upsetting though :( ).

I'm very glad you made it home ok. Stay warm and safe please! *hug*

Damn. It took me 2 hours to make the 8 mile drive from my office, and that's just a straight shot on Rt50 and Rt 28.

That blows. You know, if you ever encounter that again and can make it as far as us, you are welcome to stop here until roads improve.
