366 days of gratitude

Many took the opportunity of today’s statutory holiday to have a long weekend away.

For those in and near our bigger cities that could mean hours in heavy traffic going and returning.

I drove 210 kilometres home this evening without having to pass a single other vehicle going the same way as me. Only one car came up behind and passed me and there would have been fewer than 50 vehicles which passed in the opposite direction.

Today I’m grateful I live in a part of the country which rarely has to endure traffic delays – and most of the few I encounter would be stock rather than vehicles.

    Clearly diffrent strokes for diffrint folks.
    We had gridlock in Halswell Junction Rd last Friday then travelled South on 1 to Timaru after lunch, never seen such traffic densities on SH1 in both directions.
    Returning on Monday around noon a lot less but still plenty in both directions.
