So, I started a new job this week. And until this morning, fate had been conspiring against my ability to get to work on time. On Monday, there was a major accident on the freeway that I take into downtown Sacramento. On Tuesday (because as everyone knows the world forgets how to drive when it starts raining), there was a jack-knifed big rig on the same freeway. Fortunately, I heard the traffic report just in time and was able to take a route that took me about 15 miles out of my way but probably saved an hour in travel time.
But this morning, smooth sailing. Progress, right?
