The worst part of living in Austin is the traffic! I hate Austin Traffic. I’m quite sure I’m not the first to notice how terrible it is! Anyway, today was worse than ever. I had figured out a quick route home from work by going down a side road and cutting through a shopping complex. It’s been working for me for the last couple of months. Today, however, the Austin traffic gods put a curse on my route. They decided to do some construction on the road! Now my shortcut is taking just as long as the regular route. BOO!
