Mega-major tieups on 495 and 9 today, and boy am I glad I decided to work at home. Some reports from co-workers at our Southborough headquarters:

"Took me 140 minutes to drive 12 miles: 11.7 minutes per mile."

"Took me 40 minutes to drive 2 miles."

"it took me 120 minutes to go 20 miles. i'm too agitated now to do the math."

"Fifteen minutes to get from Boston to Framingham. One hour to get from the Pike exit to the building."

It took my husband three hours to get from Leominster to the Staples Corp. headquarters in Framingham.

I am praising God that I had planned to work from home yesterday because we had the furnace cleaner coming.
