My commute generally runs between 45 minutes to an hour. It's not my favorite part of the day. I have to amuse myself somehow so I don't roll into work in a crappy mood. I've listened to comedy recordings since I began cancer treatment so I would not be consumed with worry before those doctor visits. I decided if they got me through that, they could get me through a daily commute. Some days, however, the comedy writes itself in the things I observe along the road.
There's been rather a lot of construction along my route. As you'd imagine it slows things more than normal rush hour traffic. It adds a lot of signage too.
