9 hours

So yesterday I got off work early b/c of the snow. I took that as an excuse to come see Jameil earlier than usual. Hopped in the car, jumped on 75 south and everything was cool... for about 10 minutes. Then all hades broke loose. I guess everybody else was leaving work early too, so the highways were packed. And people were crashing into each other left and right. Not because of the road conditions, since it wasn't even icy or slippery. I honestly don't know why they were crashing. But they certainly were crashing. I counted at least 7 accidents before I even reached Downtown Atlanta. It was enough to make me want to just say forget and try again later. I had no choice though. I couldn't even get home if I wanted to. All the highways were exactly the same It took me 3 hours to get out of the Atlanta Metro area which was ridiculous.

It finally opened up a little before Macon, but it was still snowing and raining, so I had to be careful. It wasn't until I got close to Florida that the weather finally cooperated. All in All it took me 9 hours to make a trip that usually takes 5. It didn't really seem that long to me, but once I thought about how long in the car, I was instantly tired. Listening to audio books on my iPod really makes the time go more quickly. And I'm happy that I finally get to see Jameil after 3 weeks.

Hate, hate, hate traffic. But your destination was worth the aggravation! You and Jameil have a loving weekend. Happy 2/14!

I too, am glad that you made if safely, 9hrs and all. I think traffic was probably bad everywhere this past Friday.
