Bad Day

I voted around 8:15 AM, and left the courthouse complex to be surrounded by walls of cars in every direction once I left the interior of downtown. A fatal wreck on the Highway 501 bridge out of Conway left traffic screwed up all over my part of the Grand Strand. I tried the 501 Bypass, spent almost half an hour to move less than a block so I turned around and went home. I did a little Google Map research and found and alternate route that got me to work around 10:20 AM. I had to drive 30 miles to make it the 9 miles to work, but I eventually got there.

When I did, the cold that had been lurking in my head hit big time, spilling out through my lungs and dripping out my nose. I had no energy and spent a lot of time coughing, sneezing and blowing my nose. Here’s hoping some Nyquil and a nights sleep helps all that.
