Finally finished after an hour and a half and back into traffic headed for Palm Springs and a motel room. Mid day traffic isn't much better than morning traffic. It was never this bad when I lived here! Honest.
Dragged myself to the motel and crashed out. Woke up and headed out after my 10 off. Made it back to Phoenix about 04:00 today. And I'm going back to work for a while tonight and then I have 3 days off.
