Traffic is unbearable in DC. It is hell on earth.
I thought it was almost tolerable but it was Thanksgiving weekend and it looked like everyone was leaving on Wednesday.
We were transferred to VA. in the mid 70’s. We were living on Long Island and had no idea what we were about to face housing wise. We were shocked by the price of homes. We settled for a 4 bedroom colonial in Falls Church. The tiniest house I have ever lived in. The majority of our neighbors were government employees and living in large homes. I hated every minute we lived there. Fourteen months later we landed in N.J., outside Philly, and I loved it. That didn’t last as we had two more moves in the next 3 years.
TRUTH! I thought it was bad when I left in 1981. I dread the drive up to visit family, it is a nightmare.
