    Base commute today

    Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the commute today. I knew things were going to be fun when traffic stopped at Sanner's Lane on GMR. What a great idea closing Gate 3 was, just like last year!

    Which part of "...shall not be infringed." do you not understand?

    Accident on Great Mills (Checker's/Burger King) was the original cause of the problem.

    that would not have accounted for the log jam on 235.

    Also, traffic was backed up tonight trying to get to Gates 2 and 1.

    Might as well just get use to it, it's not going to change any more than going to one lane after 9 am.

    So why the gridlock at Gate 1, hmmmm? Pegg's Rd was jammed up, too.

    25 minutes from the church on Willows Road to the light at GMR. Another 3 minutes saw me through the gate though. What was fun was to watch all the "smart guys" try and find ways around it.

    The reason for the delay is simple: Gate 3 is closed for the holidays. So Gate 1 and Gate 2 had 150% of normal traffic.

    Grit your teeth and prepare to enjoy it for the next three weeks.

    No, Gate 3 was closed BEFORE the holidays. The rest of the week will indeed suck. After Friday, no problems.

    Yeah, 10 days before the actual holiday might have been bit much is the point Eds making, and I agree with. Thursday might have been a better choice as the last day. I think the amount of non-security types taking holiday leave wont be significant til this Friday. So we have close to 100% of the base workers trying to squeeze through 66% of the gate space. Doesn't help that the frustration drives a lot more box blocking.

    Dec 15 - Jan 11. Almost 4 full weeks, I'm sure January will be as much fun as this week will be.
