Where Did All This Traffic Come From?

I leave the house at exactly the same time every morning (give or take 2 or 3 minutes).  The morning routine is the same: Get ready for work Talk to the G-man Get milk for the boys Take dog out Kiss G & Mom goodbye Head out For some reason, my commute time in the last couple of weeks has gone up by about 10 or 15 minutes.  The obvious culprit is that school is … Continue reading
