I am not normally one to complain too much about Atlanta traffic as it is something of an inevitability, but it was really bad this morning. I was nearly in three accidents! One with a woman from Florida who was just yakking away on her cell phone not paying a whit of attention to what she was doing, and another because nobody would let me in on GA 400 and I was completely out of road. Then, just as I was saying a little prayer of thanks for letting me get to work safely, right in the lot, someone came around a blind turn and I managed to avoid them. 285 was really slow, and there were accidents and blue lights dotting the emergency lanes.

I don't know what was going on, but it's like people collectively didn't have their brains in gear this morning. I mean, I know I am not a morning person -- my circadian rhythms just don't run that way naturally. It's really hard for me to get out of bed. However, I typically don't leave the house without being ready to focus on what I'm doing. I can't say the same for the other drivers on the road this morning. It was more than a little scary, honestly. It wasn't just me -- other folks at work were saying it was bad as well.
