Rush Hour, Yesterday Evening

This road is normally nose to tail in rush hour.

But there was only me and the occasional vehicle (being driven like all the Hounds of Hell were chasing it).

Had The End come in some form?

Was the next thing I saw going to be a shambling Zombie that wanted to eat my brains?

Would it find a brain in my head?

Then I realised!

No Zombie Apocalypse - not today, anyway.

England was playing football/soccer in the evening, and everyone was making sure they were ready for it.

Ah well, in these troubled times I guess people should have their fun - and they are welcome if it means that I get the road more or less to myself!

PS - my daughter took her last school exam today, so she has now technically finished!  Wow.  She will be at college in September!  The college is within a stone's throw of where I work, so I am hoping we can get lunch together from time to time.

Whatever the reason, I'm happy the road was clear for you! I've been fighting some mean traffic because of construction, so to see a clear road, even in pictures, is exciting!
Congrats to your daughter! How nice that she'll be going to school nearby! I'm sure she'd be thrilled to let you buy her lunch. :)

Ah! A quiet road! There's something I haven't seen in a while. Around here, when the weather is nice, it's declared "road construction season" and half the lanes are shut down and everyone's stress levels go through the roof just trying to get to and from work.

Congrats to your daughter! Hard to believe she's heading to college already. I'm sure she'll make time for lunch with her dear old Dad from time to time. ;-)

Make sure you stock up enough supplies for the zombie apocalypse.

Congrats to your daughter. I bet she is ecstatic over finishing up high school and ready to head off to college next year. Will she be living at home while she attends classes? And congrats to the happy parents as well. A job well done!

That's my kind of road. Our roads look like that on Super Bowl Sunday.
