Today was the worst commute of my life!! I work in the DC area which has very heavy traffic to begin with and this afternoon we got hit with some very very heavy snow.
I left work at 3:30 p.m. It took me 50 minutes just to get out of my work complex!! Yes, 50 minutes from the work garage to the main road. I guess everyone decided to leave at the same time. From there to the main highway, I-66, was about another hour. I didn’t get over 25-30 mph on the main highway.
I managed to get really close to home before my car got stuck going up a mountain road. My car was blocking the road so nobody could get by. Luckily two men were able to push my car out of the way so the cars could go by.
I started walking home in the blizzard and pitch darkness, hoping no one would run me over. I called my husband to come get me in his 4-wheel drive. I got home at 8:15 p.m., almost FIVE hours later!!! It usually takes me only an hour to an hour and 15 minutes to get home. What a nightmare!!
I am glad that I didn’t have an accident or get stuck somewhere really far from home because there were plenty of stuck vehicles and accidents that I saw on my way home.
So far we have had 8 inches and the snow is still coming down hard.
