Traffic sucks, but it's not as bad here as other places....yet!
I agree with you, but if you've ever lived in another metro area, this is NOTHING. I'm not putting you down, I'm just saying.

Good insight on the commute North bound.

My thoughts are with Texas right now. I saw earlier it was a Category 4. This is going to be devastating like Hurricane Katrina. They'll need help from across the country real soon.

OP let us know if you're safe when you can.

Whew! Glad to hear it. I'm still waiting to hear from my Dad and some siblings in Austin. I was born and raised there. I think they're alright from the looks of it, at this time.

On the plus side this will make for good compelling stories and dramatic award winning coverage of historic floods. I remember when Oregon had some historic flooding 5-6 years back from a bad storm and they won awards for going out and covering that.

No problem, I came from the LA area, and completely understand. That's why I shared about looking at the traffic patterns. They will only get worse as time passes because the politicians find infrastructure like roads one of the easiest expenses to "defer" to next year. Kinda like that guy on the pool commercial "it may not be bad now, but it's gonna get much WORSE"...

However, that's one of many reasons we left, so any traffic to us is too much...LOL

One thing I will say about city planning in Las Vegas is that they make the builders add on to the road once they build, and the master plan seems to be for "full capacity". Now, can you bank that the planners always made the right choice? I don't know, but the roads here are generally "very good" compared to most places.

I think there are a few areas with unforeseen problems ie 15 & 215... its being worked on..... traffic slows but its not that bad. I have NEVER seen any of the stop and go crap I've seen in other places. Before smartphones were popular, I used to literally bring a book to read in the car when I was commuting back east.

I don't think you could even try to read a book in the car here. Things can get slow, but not for very long. There really has to be a serious problem (multi-car accident with rubberneckers) to cause a problem on the highways here.

Back east, someone could change a tire and you might be ****ed for hours.

I'm surprised anyone could get away with paying editors so low? I own a corporate video production company and we pay $25/hour for our editor. Freelance editing it's not uncommon to pay $75-100/hour though. I think it would be nearly impossible to find anyone to do freelance work under $50/hour. I know it'll be time to give my editor a raise soon, I think $25/hour is a steal lol.
