How long did it take you to get home?
normally takes anything from 50mins to double that, depending on the car park that is the M62.
Today I (and my boss and 2 more of my colleagues) opted to work from home, so getting home took no time at all 🙂
Have to see what tomorrow is like at 0730. in the meantime I have to deal with the recovery from a system crash in TampaPosted 8 years agoaracerSubscriber
Home from where? 0 minutes from work, as I didn't go in. Almost 2 hours home from mini-aracer's swimming lesson this morning, a trip which usually takes 10 minutes. To be fair, I did divert via the doctor's where I was only half an hour late for my appointment – took an hour to do what would normally take 20 minutes, though I drove a lot further than normal via all the back streets to avoid the gridlock on the main roads which were perfectly safe to drive on at normallish speeds. Took 20 minutes to get home from the doctors, a trip which would normally take 10 – had wised up by that point and totally avoided the main roads, most of the delay being waiting to get across a roundabout where my exit was completely clear but which was being blocked by numpties going across it in a direction which was gridlocked. When it moved forward a car length, the complete idiot I could have got in front of had he waited decided it was more important to close the gap than let through the line of traffic waiting to cross his path – got a long toot on the horn for his troubles, at which he did at least move forwards far enough to squeeze behind him.Posted 8 years agohungry monkeyMember
7 hours from lytham to st andrews, should have been 4.
took 40 mins to get to the motorway (should be 10), then 50 along most of the motorways (traffic/conditions)
and 6 stops – loads of salt on roads and windscreen washer jets kept freezing over – ended up with a 6 pint milk bottle filled with hot water from a service station to keep us being able to see the roads…
having said that, our main concern was keeping the hamster warm so it didn't go into hibernation (which kills domestic hamsters) – last time it nearly went into hibernation it took 4 hours to revive it!!Posted 8 years ago
