Living in Boise: The Traffic

In an effort to get Holly to at least consider moving to Idaho, I decided I should probably point some things out that I actually like about living here.

More often than not, people generally complain about things more than they think about the good things. This is actually a good thing for me to do, because it makes me wonder why we moved here in the first place. This is going to be one good thing per post b/c I have to make up for all the bad things.

Onto the traffic...there is no traffic. On a normal day, the news will report that traffic is "slow" on the way downtown, when in fact it will only take me 30 minutes to get there. The next day when they say that traffic is moving along nicely, it still only takes me 30 minutes to get there. There may be stupid drivers here, but there is nothing remotely similar to California traffic. Oh yes, I remember what California traffic was like. Evil, evil, traffic. The commute is much less stressful here than it is in California. And that's good for your health.

Did you guys read about the "Snow Rage" people are having in Spokane???

Some guy shot at a snow plow driver for honking at him to move.
