Default Dc Traffic is bll$hit

I cannot believe this crap
I am sittin in the parking lot of Target in Fredricksburg right now because I HAD to get off the road
Maybe its the 18hour trip
maybe its the raining
But I truly beleive it is the friggin IDIOTS on the road.
They act like they are drving in a snow storm!
stop for every car on the side of the road WHY?? you are not offering help keep the foot on the pedal or get the hell off the road
Then they speed up to 50 to slam on the breaks to 20?? Why gonna miss something for those few seconds??
Then instead of staying in the one lane you picked, lets cross back in forth so one lane jumps up, then the other steps 5 times back.
Then do I have to mention the people giving 10 car lenghts between them and the front runner??
Odds like this i feel I am still in Wisconson
Taking a break gonna have dinner at TGIF's

Welcome to VA MNFASTBOAT! I think you'll find Richmond much easier to get around. Should have gone to Hooters in Fredericksburg that's where last years OSO gathering was.
DC traffic is about as bad as it gets.

that really sucked
I hope the drive home on Sunday is better
took me another 1.5 hours to get to Richmond
65 miles up an down
what do the locals do when it is actually snowing??
crawl
And to think I thought the high winds and blowing snow 2/3rd through Wisconson was bad ONly saw one car in front of me spin out. I then decided to slow down also Was a little slick. Cannot believe that guy was stupid enough to swearve for something in the road when its icy
well ran around until the rain had enough of me and I was getting a little tired since I have been up for 24 hours
Hope Jon and Biggus make it OK the rain really slowed things down.
Night night and will see everyone Tomorrow.
Srobak, I came to Richmond for the MidAtlantic gathering.
Florida will be anoter time when the funds allow for 2 weeks of job hunting
