Snow and traffic GRR

I know I don't live in one of those states that gets tons of snow.  As a matter of fact we haven't had much snow in the past few years.  Maybe that is why the roads are crazy today. I was so happy to be working 15 to 20 minutes from home forgetting that King of Prussia has the most traffic.  I have been spoiled going to Allentown hardly anyone was heading that way it was the opposite direction.  Malvern all those years there are at least 3 different main roads from my house so it wouldn't get to backed up.  I know people have been in their cars longer but for a 20 minute ride it took 2 and a 1/2 hours.  Luckily I had a manga with me so I just read while stopping and then creeping along at the high speed limit of 2 miles an hour and that was when I was lucky.  The whole entire road through Valley Forge was bumper to bumper traffic.  Once we go through the one light heading to my town traffic was moving again.  Shakes head in wonder.  I know they can't put more roads through Valley forge but they should do something about the read light.  I counted 9 cars got through the one way and 10 cars are way.  No wonder we sat for hours.    Luckily school was out and it was a holiday wondering if it would of been longer if school was in and it wasn't a holiday.

Yes I am still happy that I am working so close to home but I am thinking next time head the opposite direction go to the mall and hang out for a few hours.

ugh - my friend Matt posted on Facebook that it took him forever tonight, too. Exton wasn't too bad - but they didn't do much to the roads and it's definitely going to be a mess tonight.

The roads weren't even all that bad. I was more slush then anything. Glad I wasn't the only one that it too forever to get home for.

I'm glad I didn't have to go anywhere today. I just looked at the pretty snow out the window! I can't believe you read a manga while in traffic! Ok, I would do the same thing...

I also had a book with me but it got to dark and the traffic started to move. You where lucky. Now I wonder if I need to leave in the by 6:00am to be there by 7:30am. Hmm

Did you get a lot of snow. Another lady I worked with it also took her 2 and 1/2 hours to get home. It was nuts.
