The Big Chill

Crap. The State Fair starts Friday.

It's not that I'm opposed to the fair in general, I'm a big fan of any fair I don't have to spend 20 hours a day working at, it's just what it does to the traffic around Cal Expo. With all the freeways and streets and light rail and buses and whatnot to get around, there are still only a limited number of places to get over the river. When the fair arrives the traffic backs up for miles, all day long, which sends the locals around to all the other was to get over and backs them up more than usual as well. 

Then there are the tourists, who try to go places downtown and just don't get the one way streets. Not that watching them drive the wrong way doesn't have it's entertainment value, but that does have to balanced out with the potential to get run over trying to cross the street.

I wonder if I could telecommute until September?
