TRAFFIC NIGHTMARE

Standard
PICTURE THIS.. ( photos by me)
The first time in a long time you get to go to the big city in
great weather and everything is fine and THEN this happens..
the MAJOR FREEWAY is SHUT DOWN IN BOTH DIRECTIONS.
ACKkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk  Surprised  Surprised
Not to mention that this is near 5 o’clock and traffic is heavy. Semi’s everywhere.
Major chaos. All you want to do is GET out of THERE! ConfusedEvery which way you go is
completely congested or un-passable. Re-routing through the side streets of the city.
A whole mile long section closed. State and local police have their hands full as this
has JUST OCCURED and no one is HAPPY! Baring teeth  People were  stranded on side streets
unable to back up or turn around.
All the major shopping centers are located
RIGHT AT THIS mile long stretch. The MALL is at this closed section.
YOU WONDER what in the HECK could cause all this??
Construction work was being done and somehow due to sandy soil or some such
thing a major bridge SHIFTED!!  How does this happen? I mean YIKES!
NOT GOOD! So everyone is scrambling to close down the freeway and re route the whole
freeway through TOWN. Yours truly was stuck in the middle of it. EXCITING! Smile 
Not for Sis who was driving.Sad Can you call sitting still or 2 miles an hour driving??
Sis drives so I can take pictures …LOL  so you would think the camera would be clicking
away. Well some came out and others just glare, glare off the windshield.
It took us some time sitting in the Mall parking lot trying to figure out HOW
to get on the back streets to get out of town. WE dont’ know the city that well
and so we were like the other I-94 drivers just trying to GET someplace, any place!
 At least 45 minutes later we are on our way out of the city. GNARLED is a great word
for what it was. All knotted up! Gas was 2.35 a gallon, or more in some places,
and people were just barely moving burning it up!! Talk about tense.
ANYWAY that was my afternoon yesterday. Authorites are saying it could be
as short as 4 days and as long  5 weeks to FIX the problem. People in that
CITY are praying it is 4 days but not holding their breath!  SO SO glad I dont
live there and I sure am staying away from that mess.

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY….mine will be far from
this place!!!!
