Actually New Haven wasn’t the first and only backup from hell – getting out of Boston was no easy feat with a couple of roadwork related jams, one of which was serious rockhammering a cliff -as we passed, a stone flew out of nowhere and left a nice big ding in my windshield. Can I prove it was from the rockhammering? No but it seems logical. The ding is deep enough to require repair or windshield replacement so I’m tempted to call Mass Highway Department on Monday to see if they will pay for the replacement. I’m not holding my breath.
The Merritt was one giant parking lot from the moment I crossed the Sikorsky bridge til I got off in Stamford. Multiple multi-car crashes that on the Merritt means the whole road shuts down because there’s no breakdown lane. Northbound peeps didn’t look any happier with accidents that direction too and several mile backups. It was a record long drive home but a great two days of fun in Boston. I took tons of photos and when I’m sufficiently coffeed, I’ll start posting. Noonish?? 😀
PS: I meant to add this photo from the get-go and forgot. ALL the new rest-stops long the CT portion of I-95 have this new row for parking, right up front, closer than the handicap parking. Pissed me off.
