Either way, it's going to take hours to traverse the parkway in any direction.


I have two exits to travel if it takes me hours ima freak my freak



If you don't have to get through the tunnel you might not be so bad off.

I fondly remember the area where the HOV lane ends going north on 270 during the evening rush

Route 22 in Monroeville and Murrysville was pretty bad like 2 hours ago. A lot of cars stuck on the hill and the parkway/turnpike exits. I got kicked out of my office early. So eating wedding soup and enjoying a Molson.

I'm hoping if i resist the urge to leave early, the roads will actually be in better condition.
Sloppy and slippery to walk downtown sidewalks.

I'm hoping the end of the snow (for now?) gives everyone a chance to clear the sidewalks before I leave the office. I hate when the sidewalks are slippery.

Only took me about an hour to get home from Columbia to Bethesda, usually about 40 minutes, so not bad.
