    Default Traffic is a mess out there!

    Just got home from the mountains, where a Cantelope truck caught on fire on I70, causing huge delays from Georgetown back.

    Get into town and all is well, until 6th and I25, Oh, My, Gosh.

    Head North on 25 Instead, to I-70, flooding at Washington Street!

    Do a loop de loop around Pecos to I-70 proper, finally making time, get to 225, accident.

    Must have taken me 1:30 to get from I70 and Lookout Mountain home.

    What a mess.

    Question. There was obviously a storm in town. Bad I take it? The whole town?

    As I was coming down I70, I saw these mountains off to the East. Strange, I thought, there aren't mountains east of here. The Sky was so black, and weird looking, it looked like mountains.

    470 to 285, is the route you were trying to think of, truck, navigation system.

    To be fair, I don't think I had turned on navigation then.

    Bad on me, I guess.

    So, basically what you?re saying is it was a pretty typical metro area commute these days?

    People say nothing is impossible but I do nothing every day.

    This was special. I'm pretty sure it was related to storms, but I was up in the mountains and didn't see, hear of the storms.

    If I'd known a storm had come through, I would have known I was route finding.

    Was there a huge storm at roughly 4PM our time?

    It sprinkled a little at my house around then.

    I was riding up in the mountains most of the day and got home around 3:30 right before it sprinkled.

    From my perspective, the whole city was down.

    There was no way to engage the city, or get home.

    Traffic was abominal. Just crazy bad, and a normal 30 minute drive turned in to a 1:30 adventure.

    Terrible, terrible, traffic, today.

    Cantelope tonight, the truck caught fire......
    Attempting to change human behavior by regulating a mechanical device is an exercise in futility, ignorance and most importantly, arrogance.
