A Side Effect of Congested Traffic

It was my turn to drive to Seattle. The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) posted notices everywhere the interstate would narrow from four lanes down to two.  Thinking I was clever, I left a full hour earlier than normal . . . so did everyone else.

While I was contemplating the stopped traffic in front of me, I noticed the new dent in my commute. Since I wasn’t going anywhere any time soon I documented it for posterity.

Don’t let life’s dents get you down. (No barricades were harmed during the taking of this photo.)

I’m sure when it happened it ruined the day for the drivers involved and the 70,000 people behind them. Ouch.

Have a safe weekend everyone!

    You left us hanging at new dent, as I’m grabbing both cheeks……on my face, not the mini!! mini got a dent?! Then I was thinking, think I just came up with the new title for a new song. To the tune of Janies got a gun.

    I try to keep it in perspective like you said–a much worse day for the drivers who made that dent. Yikes!

    At least you have a lovely cloudless view 🙂 But man, that commute is awful.
