I’m in Palm Desert this afternoon. I like to be here by 3:00, so I leave before 1:00. The trip’s 1:30, so that gives me leeway. Not today.
The car’s trip computer showed I was averaging 35 mph as I approached Riverside. By there my average speed is normally around 70! Uh oh.
My 90’ish minute trip took 2.5 hours today. There’s no real reason, except it’s Friday. People going to Vegas or the Palm Springs area share some of the same roads I use.
Hopefully the trip home will be traffic (and officer) free. California traffic is everything you’ve heard it is and then some.
