Is this just a phenomena in my town? Or do people everywhere not know how to drive in the rain and the dark at the same time?
It took me 45 minutes to go 14 blocks. Fourteen! My house is a mere six miles from my office. The commute was an hour and fifteen minutes.
During Snowmageddon, some people sat in their cars on the roads until the wee hours of the night. On 9-11 (yes, THE 9-11), Mr. Gaelic arrived home six hours after leaving his office. Which is also six miles from home. Granted, those were two extraordinary traffic events.
But still! It's just a little rain, people! And darkness happens every single day! That's what wipers and headlights are for. There were no fender benders on the drive home. My guess is it was just volume and people driving at much slower speeds. I shouldn't complain. On the bright side, I made it home safe and sound.
