Google's maps lets you move routes around now! So I can design my own route, and plan alternate ones in case of traffic.

Home to Work, a much better one than the one I was using in order to avoid traveling on Wisconsin. (too many red lights, Wisconsin Ave.)

Shall try this out tomorrow. Here's the hoping 46th and Massachusetts isn't too bad. Now if I could only find an alternative to River Rd... (stupid one-lane potomac roads... I swear, as much as I love the trees, sometimes the traffic gets a bit more than irritating.)

Oh man, I hope this AT&T Nationals thing (some golf event in our area) won't cause truly massive delays on River Rd. and Falls Rd.

(Hmmm, I could map out the bike routes I take using this too, and figure out how far I travel...)

Haha, yeah. Figuring out a way to avoid Wisconsin in the morning is fun.
I take Connecticut --> Nebraska --> Foxhall --> Reservoir, then loop onto 35th and make my way to the front gates. Anything to avoid 355 rush hour traffic, man. :-P

HAHAHAHAHAHA River Road makes me scream obscenities in my car.  I take the Beltway instead, which is . . . well, it's very much like voting for president, because you're fucked either way, and know you'll be spending a long amount of time fuming and shrieking and hating everyone around you.

I have decided that people who neglect to use their turn signals should be immediately sent to the Special Hell, the level near that for People Who Talk At The Theatre.

Hm. It honestly hasn't been too bad this week. There's a few points at which the traffic slows to 10-15 miles per hour, but aside from those intersections, it typically flows well. I think the Beltway might be scarier for me when I'm not entirely awake in the mornings... and traffic jams there would be hard to get around. While on River Road, you can sneak into a side street and get lost for a bit...

Indeed. Why is it that people don't use their turn signals? Especially when changing langes? Really, oh, silly people. If you want to merge into my lane, use the turn signal and I'll let you. If you start swirving towards me, I promise you, there's a 80% chance I'll speed up and cut you off.

Sweet. Now if they'd give you an option to override one-way roads, I could map out walking distances directly...

Yay for open-source APIs. Now I just need to figure out how fast I walk.
