My Time on Interstate 95 USA, Traffic Jam

Hi Dear Folk,

Yesterday we drove down to Dover, Delaware, to visit a client.  It is just under a two hour drive with good traffic conditions, an hour at the client and the drive back.  Yes the drive back, all was going well until we hit I 95

Interstate 95 runs along the Eastern seaboard of the USA, from New England to Florida, mostly paralleling the Atlantic Ocean and old Hwy 1, as you can understand obviously it is a major highway.

Getting back into Pennsylvania we hit signs for road construction ahead.  Road construction was two trucks filling in potholes with asphalt, blocking two lanes, in the middle of the day, we were all being funneled into one lane.  Can you imagine the backup that causes?  I guess my question is this, why can't that be scheduled at night.  Dear Mr. B. for ever seeing the other mans viewpoint said "well they're saving your tax dollars because they'd have to pay them overtime if they worked at night."  What about all the down time of all those people sitting on I 95 does that count for nothing?  When we did actually reach the trucks and pass them, at about 1:30 PM, not a person was to be seen.

Rain, we so need some rain, it could rain for seven days and it might just rejuvenate things, slow and gentle.  I don't think it has rained for a month.  Although the storm over the holiday weekend came up the coast, it never dropped a bit of rain as it headed out to sea.  My water bill was to say the least rather high.

Well it's Friday and tomorrow we hope to visit Lititz, the other side of Lancaster in the Amish Country area, and have lunch at the Tomato Pie Restaurant.



  1. Hope you get some rain soon! Hugs ♥

  2. It's been two dry months here but storm in the night n rain nearly all day. Around here most resurfacing takes place at night but you can still drive for miles on a motorway past an empty lane blocked off with cones. Hope you get rain but not at the festival. Sounds great.

  3. I hit so much traffic yesterday heading over to Orlando to visit my son. It was later Saturday afternoon, not a work day yet it took me 40 minutes more than it should, I am not fond of traffic at all.
    Hugs and have a good week,
