Living in Tulsa and Southern California Makes For An Interesting Life - Especially After All Those Grey Years In Seattle
Yes, some of the motorways around London are terrible that way. I remember the last time I flew into London and for some reason Bill drove down to pick me up. It took us 2 hours to get out of London. I was just glad I didn't desperately need the loo.
Parking at the airport or driving down, it ends up being the same amount of time doesn't it. We are having to make that same decision about going to the Grand Canyon 12 hours driving but nearest airport is Las Vegas and still a long drive, tricky one.
Oh gosh. Our youngest lives in the LA area and contends with this stuff all the time. I don't see how she does it. I know The Hubby would pull his hair out. He hates Tulsa traffic and that's nothing compared too...
Oh, how terribly frustrating. Traffic jams are a nightmare!
Hahaha. Having just returned from "Down South" I can identify with the photo. Even 210 on an early Sunday morning had more traffic than most people have to commute in. That's not to say the Bay Area is a whole lot better.Darla
Hi Shelley - I can't imagine driving in London traffic at the best of times. It's so sweet what our husbands will do for us!
Hi Jody - With modern electronics, the drive with kids is so much easier that corralling them through the airports and rental car lots. So you know what my vote is for. Would you go through Reno, possibly? But then you might have the problem of explaining Pahrump, Nevada to the kids.
Hi Carla - I wasn't in Tulsa when your daughter was performing - sorry to have missed it. Her song on your blog was great. All my kids are in California so I know what you mean.
Hi Carolyn - Most of the time we have no problem, but when that LA freeway traffic gets slowed down, it really gets slowed down. Which is better than Seattle was.
Hi Darla - When we first brought my daughter down from Seattle as a freshman to CSUSF, my mother apologized for the Bay Area traffic, and my daughter said, "Grandma, I'm from Seattle - you have to do a lot more than this to impress me!" But this particular day on the LA freeway would have done it!
