Now, I know Hampton Roads Virginia is not a major metropolitan area.¬†¬†I know the difference because I've lived in the Washington DC Metro area as well as the Los Angeles Metropolitan area.¬† I‚Äôve experienced extended stays in New York, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Chicago, Philly, Detroit, Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and the list goes on.¬† So by no means am I comparing any of those areas with Hampton Roads Virginia and I‚Äôm certainly not comparing the traffic here with any of those areas either. HOWEVER, I had the misfortune of being a part of the MORNING RUSH HOUR in Hampton Roads the other day.¬† OH MY GOODNESS!!!¬† ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!¬† Now, maybe since I work evenings and have not dealt with anything like that in, oh say‚Ä¶‚Ä¶..fifteen years‚Ä¶..I might just be a little out of practice.¬† I mean, usually, I‚Äôm dealing with traffic when people are leaving work and perhaps they are just a little less ENERGIZED!!!¬† That morning traffic is crazy!!!¬† People all hopped up on coffee and caffeine and driving at the speed of THOUGHT!¬† And the thought is‚Ä¶‚Ä¶‚ÄĚI‚Äôm gonna be late, I know I shoulda quit hitting that *#^&% snooze button.¬† Boss said if I‚Äôm late just one mo time‚Ä¶‚Ä¶‚ÄĚ¬† People were riding bumpers like race cars drafting at the Indy 500.¬† They would change lanes and THEN signal.¬† I felt like Capt. Kirk of Star Trek¬†‚Ä¶..only difference was my mission was to seek out new lanes and boldly drive where no one had driven before‚Ä¶‚Ä¶meaning‚Ä¶‚Ä¶the shoulder.¬† Cause I pulled over and parked!¬† I called my wife and told her to come get me.¬† She drives in that morning madness daily, so no big deal to her.¬†¬†That‚Äôs right, I told her to COME GET ME!!¬† I‚Äôll come back around 10 a.m. (when all the senior citizens are driving) and get the car.¬† ¬†Morning traffic, just one MORE reason to have a home based business.¬† If you need some¬†info on a good one, email me.
