You can never have a road trip without some kind of fun. I am actually writing this on my trip back to school from my visit home last night.
As you can imagine there are always wrecks especially when it begins to snow. The interstate is shut down and I am following traffic on this so called detour. I do not have an iPhone or GPS to tell me where I am or where I am going and at this moment traffic is stopped and has been for the past thirty minutes.
There has already somehow been another wreck on this back road and people are out of the cars it actually reminds me of a scene from “The Walking Dead” traffic is stopped both sides o the road I’m in the middle of no where no one knows what is going on and people are running around outside of there cars like idiots.
The lovely part of this trip is I was in a hurry to make it back to work however it doesn’t look like I will be making it there any time soon. I have half of mine to turn this little piece of crap car I drive around and take it back home and enjoy another night with my friends from home.
What is good is my boss was understanding and said that it was alright because two others have called in and it seems to be a thing for everyone else to show up late today anyway. I am still an hour and a half from school and if things don’t get a move on soon enough I will probably head back home and return tomorrow once the interstate has been cleared up.
As for now I shall sit in traffic and enjoy some “Mumford and Sons” while taking pictures of this crazy mess. Everyone have a wonderful day and stay out of traffic.
I was unable to post this while on the road so now I am adding to it.
As we have all seen I was stuck in traffic today for about two hours. At one point a truck driver pulled off the side of the road into a gravel area, he was telling the car infront of me how to get out and take another route. I decided to ask him what that was and see if that route would benift me in anyway.
He told me to park and come over and he would show me on his map because I had told him I did not have a GPS. So I went over and talked to the guy whom was very nice and he showed me a way to go except that way was going to take me an hour east of my destination so really it wasn’t helping me too much. So I thanked the kind man and proceeded with my journey of sitting in place on some random road in the boonies.
It was finally time for me to clock in at work and I told them that in the past two hours I had maybe moved an entire two miles. They were not happy about this and their attitudes went from understanding to pissed off at me. However I can not help that I was in traffic due to the interstate being shut down. So I will not loose any sleep and they are stuck with one less employee for the day not hurting me any, except I will be written up which really does nothing especially since I have never once called into work or in that case ever been late to work.
So I turned around and headed back home and lost three hours of my day in which I spend sitting in a car accomplishing nothing.
Also now that I have gotten home and been able to see the news I now know that both sides of the interstate were shut down because two tractor trailers and four cars were the cause of a wreck that killed six people and sent one to the hospital with life threatening injuries. So prayers go out to their familes for sitting in traffic means nothing compared to what has happended to others today.
