Wait, you started the thread. With "yikes" in the title.

Great minds think alike!

Many have thought that....including myself. Remind yourself "the parade's on the other side of downtown" when you're sittin' in the traffic jam....

Honestly, hope you don't get tied up in traffic - but I'm afraid you will. Good luck, and have fun at least!

Well, I left at 8:20 and passed Mi Tierra at 8:45...thinking that I could park somewhere else..got turned around and ended up back at 9:15. No problems at all. By the time we all left at 11 it was starting to get crowded. Now I'm safe and sound back on the northside working from home! If you leave now...oh, my thoughts are without.

yeah i was downtown this morn. its not even that bad. as long as you dont mind paying 10, 15, or even 20 dollars for parking. Now this parade later tonight, I dont know how the traffic is for that.Also I wanted to say that people who camp out for a whole week to see a parade are the lamest and biggest losers I have ever seen.

Most CEOs or CFOs find it difficult to take off for the week of Fiesta or Easter.
