Bottom line is that some folks are not happy unless they are finding misery. I have found that the people I have worked with in CT are among the friendliest and I still maintain contact with so many of them.

They were probably Connecticut residents with vehicles registered in New York.

There's some rather insane driving everywhere, I think.

A few days ago I got passed on Route 44 - in a construction zone. Since there's bridge work on one spot in Pomfret, the road is reduced to one lane. The signs say alternate three cars at a time. I was the fourth car in line, so I stopped to let three cars the other way go through. Not good enough for the person in the black sports car behind me, who pulls out and goes through as the fourth car. And after this, the person tended to swerve all over the lane and go anywhere between 40 and 70 mph. (Speed limit on 44 and 74 = 45 mph.) I was stuck behind this for 15 miles.

I usually do about 55-60 through the stretch, but at least be consistent about it. This person, not so much. Perhaps driving distracted or antagonistically.

I'm telling you, it's the heat. I went off on someone today, and then realized, I was dehydrated, sick of being soaked in sweat, salt incrusted FROM my own sweat, and just damned miserable.

Thanks for bringing the Florida weather up with you. LOL
