The drive was pretty hairy today, especially the portion I drove. Wes got us through Maine and then I took over in New Hampshire, just in time to wait in the 5-mile line for the NH toll booth. Then we hit a very heavy downpour in upper Massachusetts (while I was still driving) and another multi-mile line for the toll on the Mass Turnpike. Even though I only drove a couple of hours, I felt like I had driven the whole trip by the time we switched drivers in Connecticut. Those New Englanders are aggressive drivers, something I surely am not. I never thought I would say this, but we were SO glad to see the New Jersey state line! :-) The traffic actually thinned out a bit on 287. A trip that should have taken us a little less than nine hours took us over ten.
We head for home tomorrow with about a nine-hour trip ahead us. I hope that traffic isn't as bad tomorrow for the drive home. Please pray for our safety, because our nerves are about shot! :-)
