Where Did All This Traffic Come From?

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:

  1. Get ready for work
  2. Talk to the G-man
  3. Get milk for the boys
  4. Take dog out
  5. Kiss G & Mom goodbye
  6. 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 back in session now.  But here’s my question… where the hell does everyone go in the summer?  I mean sure I know that kids aren’t in school so there would be SOME drop in morning commute but do you mean to tell me that all of these parents are just working from home during the summer?  Are there THAT many people that take summer vacations?

And don’t even get me started on bad weather drivers… I’ve lived in Cleveland for a long time.  I know how to drive in the rain (just a little slower) and the snow (a little slower than that).  That seems pretty straight forward to me.  Apparently for the majority of people in this damn town rain=forget how to drive.

Grumble grumble grumble.
