Hi from Florence, South Carolina this Palm Sunday. 🙂
We had twelve hours on the road yesterday.
We had expected 10. The biggest trouble we encountered below Pennsylvania driving south on I-95 was outside of Washington, D.C. That’s been the case before, but this was the worst experience.
Too many cars, and not enough road space – even on a Saturday. There was a terrible accident on I-270 just above Washington, which tied up the road an hour. Fortunately, it seemed no one was injured.
Then, there was also mobile pothole-filling on I-270 towards Washington. Two lanes down to 1 meant a long delay.
Then there was similar filling on the merge itself from the “Beltway” (I-495) onto I-95 southbound towards Richmond. Do you know what happens when you force six lanes of traffic into two? Let’s just say, that’s called “Our government in action.” 😉
Finally clear of that, due apparently to sheer volume traffic crawled all the way to Fredericksburg, Virginia.
I wondered, “What would Ulysses S. Grant have thought of this?”
The area’s changed quite a bit since 1864 of course.
Today, thankfully, no Washington, D.C. area roads. On to Florida. 🙂
