Getting worse, too. Beltline in Irving, for example, used to be a quick connector -- since around mid last year it's a parking lot in the mornings. The whole metroplex feels like it's turning into a hive.

Thankfully I go to work at 5:45am and head home before 4pm so there is hardly any traffic. I couldn't do the 9-5 commute times. I wouldnt be able to handle it. I dont know how people put them selves through that mess.

Yeah, it sure tends to be, Bypass.

I'm transitioning into the driveless lifestyle (copy-editing, technical editing), but it's going to be a bit until I can rightfully claim the true mantle of non-commuting awesomeness.

My commute is less than 30 mins each way...usually less than 20 in the afternoon.

Made sure to buy my house not too far from work. 10 minute commute every day right down Greenville. A coworker lives in Keller and it sometimes takes him 2 hours to get home. Sure he has a bigger house than I do, but that would never be worth the commute for me.
