    Studies show the average person spends 51 hours a year on the road.

    I wish that's all I was on the road. I drive about 25 miles each way and spend 2-2 1/2 hours a day in commute. And that's in perfect weather and no accidents. Oh how I shudder when I wake up and its raining, even the slightest sprinkle.

    Traffic sucks.


    So what's your commute like? I am sure there are those that take alot longer and others that flat out make me jealous.

    Right k has the dream job.

    The only thing I was ever wondering about that though would be if I had a job where i was home it would probably drive me crazy. I think i would need to leave the house to get into work mode and away. Sometimes away is good but I would definitely choose telecommute and stay home than what i do now.

    7 miles. Takes anywhere from 30minutes to 2 hours to travel depending on seasonal traffic and accidents. :(

    Good thing is, If I leave home 45 minutes early, I'll get to work at the same time as if I left late due to schools taking in. So there's no use in leaving the house early. :)
