Before I got to the bottom I was thinking you and I were driving on the same road. This blows.

Holy crap!

Yeah, I'm glad we moved! It took 45 minutes in normal weather to get home when we lived in NJ.

Last night, I grabbed Levi at 4pm so we could get on the road. It took an hour and 40 minutes to get from Berkeley Heights to Bethlehem. I still think it's better than NJ. :)

Yesterday was just miserable. We were out in the morning but I was glad I didn't need to go out again later in the day.

Nick was flying back from a business trip and had 2 flights cancelled because of the weather in Newark. Ugh. He did eventually make it home though.

Bleah! I hate driving in that stuff. What the heck is up with truck drivers? They do that in Colorado, too.

That snowfall was a weird one. I actually made the whole trip home in my normal time. The snow wasn't encountered until I hit the Princeton area and got worse as I climbed further north, but I hit this weird traffic bubble where the traffic was super light and I didn't need to worry about every other person around me.

The ride back to Delaware the next day; well that was a whole different affair. I hate it when life re-balances.
