I’ve complained before: Atlanta is not good at traffic. Not only have they not quite managed the concept of merging, they also arbitrarily speed up and slow down. Bottom line, it is a nightmare to drive here. So imagine one of our busiest highways catching fire during the afternoon commute. All I can say is that I’m so incredibly glad that I worked from home today and that there were no injuries or fatalities when the i85 in Atlanta caught on fire and eventually collapsed today. We watched the news coverage (which was our collective first exposure to local news) with a group of friends at game night. It was absolutely wild. Now we’ll just have to see how tomorrow’s commute is!
Since today was my work from day, I stayed in comfy clothes all day! I wore my Red Sox shirt, which was a good homage to the season almost starting again. I will say, the thing I miss most about the northeast is going to a Sox game!
