A Holiday Travel Extravaganza
They are saying 40 million folks are hitting the road this weekend for the 4th of July weekend.
I'd believe it. We drove down last night and it took 3 hours to get out of DC. Once past Manassas - at 7:00 pm - traffic finally eased up though I was a bit surprised to hit traffic slowdowns in Knoxville at 1:30 in the morning (and a 35 minute wait at the McDonalds drive through). Ended up geting in to our house at 3:30 am - the drive from Knoxville down to Chattanooga was packed with cars - as busy as if it had taken place at 5:00 pm on a Friday afternoon. Incredible.
