We headed home from L.A. early this afternoon and quickly got snarled in a series of traffic jams, including this one.
The cause was nothing unusual, just the intersection of two highways. Everyone tells me that this kind of gridlock can happen anywhere and anytime in Los Angeles.
We actually were fortunate today. None of the jams lasted long, and we were back in San Diego in 2 1/2 hours. Rex says that's unusually fast for a daytime trip.
