Friday Communte from Hell

My 12.5-mile, 20-minute commute (40 minutes on a bad day) took over two hours today. There was constant forward motion, so that rough average of under 6 mph--nursing a manual transmission--is an accurate representation of the experience (that average includes the last 1.5 miles that instantly stepped up to 40+ mph).

Heh. At least I can rest assured that 1st and 2nd gear work very well on my trusty Honda Civic...

The best part? Getting out of the car at home and realizing that sitting almost immobile for two hours immediately after spending the day on screaming joints means you can't stand up straight anymore.


I miss my 2.3-mile commute in Arizona.
