Weird Morning

This morning was a first in Santa Barbara for me and my drive to work. It normally takes me between 12 and 15 minutes to get to work. This morning went a little different.

I woke up extra early. I dried my hair. I curled it. I shaved my legs and I put on a skirt!! I know....seriously!!! I was ready to get into work and get working.

I left my house at 7am. When I hit Pueblo, 101N was already starting to back up. At this point, I decided it would be a good detour to stop by and deposit a bank was on State, and that would be a faster route than the freeway. I had no clue what was going on with the traffic.

5 minutes later I was on my way back to 101. Well, I got in the wrong lane and ended up back on 101S. Oops!! I exited Las Positas and decided to take Modoc to Hollister to get to work.

1 hour later I'd moved about 500 feet.

While I was sitting there, I used my phone to find out what happened. There was a fatal car accident on 101N this morning at 530am. Just terrible. Someone was driving the wrong way on the freeway....evidently for 8 miles. Hit 6 cars before hitting the last one where someone was killed. Just terrible.

So, after sitting in my car for about an hour and 40 minutes....I decided to head back home. It took me a whole 5 minutes to get back to my house where I could get some work done. I hadn't gone very far.

One advantage to working from home.....the company. :)

I was able to head into the office a little bit later as I saw the freeway was cleared up. Wish I could take Molly to the office with me!! :)
