Car-Mageddon

Last night I went to load the pictures from this weekend to my camera and I took maybe 5 {insert sad face here} so I will have to wait until my mom gets back in town to show you the pictures.

I am not sure if you are aware or not, but this weekend is CAR-MAGEDDON in LA when the 405 shuts down for 10+ miles.

Anyone who lives in LA or has visited LA knows the 405 is always a disaster therefore traffic this weekend is going to be awful, beyond awful.

MG and I already have plans to head to the grocery store on Thursday night and stock up on anything we could need this weekend.  Sound dramatic?  Maybe a little bit, but one of the major detours, Bundy, is about 1 mile away from our apartment so traffic is going to be bad.  One of my co-workers this morning said when the OJ chase happened in 1995 they closed the 405.  She was stuck in traffic for 5 hours! From Brentwood to Manhattan Beach, about 20 or so miles. The highway begins closing at 7 PM on Friday so I am crossing my fingers that work lets us go early on Friday.  It is going to be a nightmare getting home.  Oh the perks to living in LA {please note sarcasm here!}
