As a traffic anchor in Washington D.C., I can vouch for all of the studies that rank our city as one of the worst traffic cities in the country. Even on a good morning, drivers creep along the Beltway.
And don't even get our Metro riders started. Two words: Safetrack Surges. Enough said.
But not this week. This week I'm pledging to skip the backroads and not tap my steering wheel impatiently when our country's history is right out my car window.
I mean, take a look at my drive (below!). All of my fingers and toes can't count up how many important places I pass every day.
And if gratitude doesn't stop me from getting testy in traffic down the road (pun intended)...
I'll just remind myself at least it's not inauguration week - when it is easier to kayak across the Potomac River than find a bridge open for drivers.
