    holy crap 9 hours! :eek:

    took me forever to dig out, the drive in wasn't too bad, about an hour and a half late.

    I hope they get DC sorted out today, I have to drive down there tomorrow morning at 6.

    Wife and I are both home today with the baby. It took me an hour to do the driveway apron alone. Friggin plows were out in force early this morning and I'm convinced one of them made a left into my driveway before backing up and continuing on its way. :mad: Shoulder bursitis is killing me. Anyone have a few vicodin they can bring me? [IMG]http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x147/cherpatsy/emoticons/2410_batting_eyelashes.gif[/IMG]

    Glad I cancelled my trip to Pentagon City this week. Postponed actually, but I think I can push it to early March. I hate DC in the winter.

    I've been told that's a spectacularly unathletic time. Then again, one does get quite the cardio workout [B]whilst[/B] being chased by chickens. :rolleyes:

    [B]Traffic and Transit Update: 12-Hour Commute [/B]



    [B]Updated 1:41 PM EST, Thu, Jan 27, 2011[/B]

    [B]Twelve hours. That's how long it took some people to get home using the George Washington Parkway Wednesday night.[/B]

    Danielle Heard finally made it to her destination at [I]5:30 a.m. Thursday[/I] after leaving her Crystal City office at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday.
    She said traffic came to a halt on the road at about 5:15 p.m., and moved very little after that. She did a phone interview with NBC Washington at the 10-hour mark of her drive home.
    "People have begun to abandon their vehicles," she said. "When you finally do get some movement, you're driving around them, or around people who ran out of gas."

    She said some people began walking out of frustration, while others decided to sleep in their vehicles.
    "It's surreal," she said.
    Heard said she believes Park Police were trying to do their best, but there was very little communication.
    "Even the first five or six hours, the news outlets haven't been reporting on the G-W Parkway. That only added to the frustration," she said. "We feel like the folks of Whoville -- we're here, we're here. And we weren't really getting any feedback."
    At the 10-hour mark of her journey, she made it to the scenic overlook. Her long journey finally ended at 5:30 a.m. That's when she texted NBC Washington to let us know she finally got home.
