Because last night will be remembered for a long, long, long time as the worst commute in the history of the DC area!
There are stories of some people being stuck on a road for 9 hours because of the unending gridlock. Some people abandoned their cars after they ran out of gas or got stuck in the 5 inches of extremely wet, slick slush.
My story involved sitting in my car for 2 ½ hours to go less than half a mile from my office. After a near panic attack, I made the decision to exit the road to wait out the madness at a local mall. Three hours later though, the conditions remained the same so I anxiously drove back to my office (7 hours after leaving it) to spend the night.
Fortunately, I was able to spend the evening with 3 of my co-workers so I wasn’t alone. We had a few drinks, watched hilarious You Tube videos and got a little loopy. It was basically an office slumber party!
But I count myself fortunate for my experience and the silver lining is that I now have a great story of where I was during the worst commute in Northern Virginia history. And I got a free Wii Fit!
