I consider myself pretty lucky this Thanksgiving, not just because of healthy family and friends, but because I don't have to travel at all this holiday. According to AAA, this will be the busiest Thanksgiving travel holiday since 2005.
Just a normal, beautiful Thursday afternoon...during rush hour.
I was going about my regular day. Actually, it was a rare event that I was simply heading home after work without having something to get to last night. Alas, I still take the same route: Central Avenue to I-87 to Alternate Rt 7 to 787 and beyond.
My commute came to a rough, smokey halt by the Boght Rd overpass on alternate Rt7.
