I am glad. LOL. It's also a good thing (for me) you don't live in the Seattle area. There are accidents CONSTANTLY. The way people drive here, it's unbelievable! You can plan for Mariniers games or other events down town, I guess, if you check every day the events calendar. But you'd also have to foresee bridges opening up for tall ships, trains holding up the traffic at seemingly random times. Sometimes you think you can almost go and they stop and back up...sometimes quite a distance, then go again!:wall: There can be weather related issues that can spring up in the winter suddenly. You're going along and round a corner and there's snow and ice forming and people are slowing down and still tail gating like they always do. Then there's an accident. LOL. No, you can not always control when you're going to get to your destination...not around here anyhow....... unless.......................................you leave about 5 hours ahead of time. Who in their right mind would do that? Do you know the year before last here in Seattle, when it snowed and they don't do anything about the snow...no plows, no salt, no nothin'.....it was so bad, accidents, fender benders, people stuck at a stand still for hours and hours, people running out of gas, peeing on the side of the road, people were in trouble, in other words. I was here visiting...hadn't moved here yet and I picked up my daughter from work downtown Seattle. We must have hit a lucky window and got home to her place quickly. People who were traveling after us had it rough. Some people at her work took 10 hours to get home. TEN HOURS to drive a 15 - 30 minute drive or so. It's crazy here. People are idiots how they drive in the snow, plus the snow sucks and there are hills like you would not believe.
