The Commute Home

 
Posted by Picasa


The commute home, even in my little town, is driving me to my wits end....there is not a route I drive that has not been put under construction since I started back to work ( I work at a school so not such a problem for me in the summer)....This is a bridge that is being widened and reinforced...due to be done sometime next summer....usually I take this route but now I try to avoid it but sometimes I can't...this was on my way home and I did have to wait while the earth movers were moving the earth!

  1. I always said that the perfect job had to be within 5 minutes of my home so that I could walk and avoid such hassles.

    I only had one "perfect" job.

  2. While you are stuck in the traffic it will give you time to think of all the good post you have lined up for your blogging frinds. I try to turn situation like traffic jam into times of relaxation or fun...

  3. Because we live near holiday favourites the roads are always busy. It is great however being able to travel on the motorbike as we can overtake the cars. Whitby in particular is very very popular. The traffic jams are so long! When we are overtaking I can hear the adults shouting at the children! In a strange way it is hilarious!

  4. Neva, it's much better to have roads under construction than holes on the road. That's what we get here in some roads.
    Anyhow, I understand you. I take nearly an hour to do 11 quilometers from my job to the place I live. Stop, go, stop, go, stop, go... damn' it!

  5. I've been lucky to always work in small towns where there was not much traffic. My last nursing job before I retired was only two miles from home.
    I sympathize with you but I think it's like that around most big cities. Signs of progress I guess.

  6. Sure I agree with Quint,it's much better to have roads under construction.

    Love the sky with clouds!

  7. This bridge was a death trap due to how it was curved so I am thrilled it is being fixed and the curve taken out of it....I just wish that all the roads I can take didn't have construction on them...it is one of the reasons we don't LIVE in the city of Chicago....oh well,,,into each life a little rain...or construction.. must fall!!

  8. At least you had a nice blue sky with fluffy clouds to look at - if you noticed that of course!

  10. Here they call such a place/road "the bottleneck" or in other words: a place where the trafficjams are starting, Nice shot and I like the describing, not the clouds BOO)

    :) Have a great weekend :)

  11. Nice shot. Too bad you have that commute problem.

    Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog. We too are having some traffic delays as they are scrambling to fix a bunch of major streets prior to winter so couple of delays thru town.

  13. Construction on the road is often bothering, but with this blue sky, I think you could have been less annoyed.

  14. Zen and all that jazz when stuck in traffic. I 'try' to remain calm but difficult if you are off to catch a plane or meet a friend and get held up.

    Thanks for your comments whilst I've been away. Much appreciated.

  15. I did enjoy this sky..it was fairly cool (60*)this day which probably made it so clear and blue..

  16. I have the same thought as GE. Love the blue sky up there :)

  17. Boy do I ever hate traffic ties--we've had some wing-doozies here lately with construction on I94. Piano Boy and I were recently caught on I94 for hours and hours just trying to get to to Toys R Gus. I do NOT envy you!
