To mark this record setting event, I thought it might be an appropriate time to post a photo of a collage I did a few years ago. It's actually titled "Gridlock." Specifically it was the teeth-clenching nature of the metro area residents' daily commute that I wanted to convey with this piece. As anyone who lives here knows, at peak traffic times it often takes an hour or more to travel just 10 miles. And that's without any fender benders or other problems (like ice) to contend with. The aerial views of this week's traffic debacle reminded me so much of Gridlock I just couldn't resist sharing it with you.
