Just wanna send out a BIG THANK YOU to the CREEP who caused this morning's insanity on the Outer Loop. I hope you're proud of yourself that you are the loser you are. 74 MINUTES to travel FOUR MILES resulting in being 45 minutes late to my J-O-B. You must be the pride of your 'fambly', loser. Take some... driving courses you miserable bum otherwise stay off the streets and allow those of us who actually KNOW how to drive correctly the means to do so!

There was an accident on the outer loop of the Beltway near Telegraph Road. Only two lanes were getting by and the backup stretched into Springfield.

There was also an accident on 95N at the mixing bowl that shut down two right lanes. Typically, my commute is an hour. Today, it took me two hours to get to work.

There's no point ranting about it though. It is what it is and I expect to have days like this. I figure the people who were involved in the accident are having a worse day than I am - by far.

I once saw a big Ford pick-up truck with a bumper sticker that said:

"Welcome to Northern Virgina -- expect delays".

That pretty much sums it up.

What a great outlook to have! It seems like most people (everywhere, not just NOVA) tend to be the opposite...

Yep, take a book and some water on every drive (maybe a couple Xanax). Employers around there know to expect people being late occasionally because of traffic. The job will still be there.
