|October 3, 2004 -- I've made it to the cold storage at Fort
Worth, Texas where I deliver at 9:00 AM Monday morning.
I noticed that
there wasn't as much traffic out on the roads this weekend. This was
especially noticeable as I went through along I-80 south of Chicago,
Illinois. Normally on a Saturday afternoon there are significant traffic
slow-downs or even stop-and-go situations. I was able to sail right on
through without even really slowing down. I guess people must have decided
to stay home this weekend. The lighter traffic certainly makes for more
pleasant driving. The $2.00 dollar per gallon gas prices might also have
something to do with it !!!!
