(today’s pictures courtesy of my iPhone 3g. maybe someday i will have an iPhone 4, and we’ll all judge the picture quality. and maybe someday i’ll take my nikon non-slr camera and see how it performs. and can you imagine if i had a nikon slr?)
right around 6:30 am edt i started getting acquainted with my neighbors.
this was my favorite neighbor. (okay, that picture down there. curse my amateur blogger skillz.)
but mostly, the next 45 minutes looked like this. (not a lot of movement. except for the firetruck, 6-ish state police, and 2 ambulances that cruised past on the shoulder.)
hi, hi, hi.
are you having fun yet? i was trying really hard to. i’d vote for myself. the radio first reported the multi-car pile-up that caused this jam more than 30 minutes after traffic stopped.
around 7:15 am edt, i took this picture. (did i say yet how grateful i am to have been in the traffic jam and not in the traffic accident?)
yes! we’re moving again. no! i can’t take pictures while driving. also no, the front of that car is not hidden by me side-view mirror. it’s mashed to bits. pro’ly 6 or 8 cars looked that way. i believe this pic is of a murano. same car my husband drives.
