The Long Pile Up On Interstate 35

Every day when I come home from work, I always take interstate 35.

That is the quickest way to get home after a very long and tiring day.

Well, most of the time it is anyhow. Last week, while coming home from work, there was a huge pile up of traffic on that interstate, and it took me almost 3 hours to get home! Usually, I am home within a little less than an hour. The fact that it was a very hot Summer day didn’t help matters either. I ended up having to crank the air conditioning in my car while I was stuck in the blazing hot sun. Barely moving but maybe every few minutes. And, I was only moving a few inches! Even with the air conditioning cranking, it was still getting rather annoying and stuffy in the car. I happened to be caught in a place where the sun was blasting me right in the face! I tried to reflect the sun with the visor in the car. This helped a little, but not totally. Also, I don’t like cranking my air conditioning this high, because it runs down the battery of my car. By the time I was able to get the car moving again, even with the air conditioning cranked, there was this really bad burning hot spot on the seat next to me. I had to be careful to not put my hand or arm on it or i’d get burnt. I certainly hope that a traffic back up like this never happens again!
