We’re Traffic Wimps

I encounter a traffic jam nearly every day and I whine about it a lot. My commute is fifty minutes each way when there is no traffic; it is typically 60 to 70 minutes each way on a ‘normal’ day. The longest since I moved to where I live was just over three hours into work one morning a few years ago.

But that is nothing compared to the one in China this week. Actually, it has been underway for more than a week. This one is in its 10th day and the backup is 62 miles long! Those are not typos. Here are a couple of stories relating to the mess. The first has very peaceful music as a background. The second has more details.
