So it doubled.... But, an hour isn't too bad I suppose. Normally it takes me 50-60 minutes on average.

I work in Waterford and live in Birmingham. It took me 27 minutes to get home last night instead of the normal 25.

I normally take Telegraph south to Quarton or Maple but could tell right away that Telegraph was going to be a disaster (it seemed like people were driving about 12 mph from Pontiac Lake Road down to Square Lake) and quickly made the decision to weave my way through the small neighborhood roads. Much smoother, and more relaxing, drive with no significant traffic.

Southfield to Orchard Lake - 1.5 hours instead of 40.
My wife from D-town to home was 3 hours.

Maybe 5 extra minutes. I work in Auburn Hills and live in Oxford. When its snowy, I skip taking Lapeer rd and run up Kern rd behind bald mountain. Bumps and snow, but no traffic.

Normal commute is approximately 10 minutes depending on how many red lights I catch. It took 25 yesterday.

I can't believe unbelievably fucking stupid some people can be. 90% of my commute is a 45 mph zone. If you have to go 20 in a 45 mph because you're uncomfortable driving with 1" of snow on the ground, you need to stay the fukc home. Also, the fucking pricks that think, "WELL, IF I CAN'T SEE THE LINES, THEN THEY DON'T EXIST", and drive down the middle of the fucking road (also going 18 mph) need to be dragged from their cars and have the shit kicked out of them.


I go over the highway (131) and on BOTH south bound and north bound ramps, cars were wrecked and had traffic stopped.

Normal is about 45 minutes, I'd say it took me about an hour an 15 minutes. But to be honest, I wasn't paying attention to the time. I had to piss like a racehorse and was just concentrating on the road and getting by the morons doing 20mph.

I think it added an extra minute. Traffic was bad crossing M-59. It might have been 16 minutes. Very annoying.

Milford to Hartland is a rough commute.

This about sums up my commute too.
Picked my daughter up at school 1.5 miles away and it took 6 minutes instead of 4 each way.

I did get to honk at a state trooper in PoHo who was texting on his phone and missed the light turning green.
He gave me hard looks.
