Five !@#$%^& hours!

Up early, I left Elk Grove a little before 5:30 a.m. for a meeting in San Francisco. I knew I was going to be in trouble when I glanced at the radar and there was a solid band of yellow over the bay area; I just did not know how much trouble.

A big-rig truck jackknifed and caught fire on westbound Interstate 80 near Gilman Street in Berkeley shutting down the freeway for about 40 minutes. It ended up taking me more than five hours to get into downtown San Francisco. urrgghh...

The meeting finished up a little after 4:30 p.m. and I was dreading the drive home. Interesting, the traffic was very light; it was more like a weekend than a weekday. I was able to cruise home in about 1 hour and 50 minutes. I could not decide if people just gave up in the morning, turned around and went home in the morning commute or they decide to work late to make up for showing up late. I suspect the former.
