Last time I heard a traffic report, it sounded like we had likely surpassed 40km worth of traffic, I was lucky enough to only see about 20-minutes of it on the front line near the cloverleaf. Once I heard my usual Interstate was FUBAR as well, I just split off for the nearest US route.

Remind me, to never take the west side loop *around* Palmetto again, flibbin’ ancient roads that are so tight, you could pick your noise and hit a house, lol.
