Trek to a Trim

haircutmap090207Highway construction threw up an ice dam on the Gulf Freeway south today, then traffic clogging up alternative routes couldn’t even weep down the walls to either side. Seeing 45 at a standstill from Scarsdale, we looped through the gas station to try Highway 3. Finding it even worse there, we backtracked to Beamer, but that was constipated all the way back to Dixie Farm. Even 518 felt like Rita evacuation at spots, yet we still made it down to NASA 1’s intersection with 45 in time to catch Pink Panther 2 before today’s haircut appointment, certainly quicker via our 15.8-mile roundabout versus if we’d tried to sit through the 6.6-mile direct route. Good thing we left plenty of time; and at least we didn’t have to contend with next week’s Galveston Mardi Gras traffic.
