…was this accident involving an overturned tractor-trailer carrying road salt, which caused me to be stuck in traffic forever and be almost an hour late to work.
I went about 2.5 miles in an hour, on stretch where I usually cover that distance in about 3-5 minutes. I wanted to tear my hair out.
They had the 405 freeway choked down to 2 lanes (it’s normally 6 at that point), although I think it was only one lane for a while. It was the most thoroughly unpleasant commute I’ve ever dealt with.
Damn you, salt!
