I was curious what “Black Friday” would look like on route 9.Â Since it was so nice out, Ethan and I walked up to the hill by Cabot House furniture (and Ginseng) to check it out.
It was pretty much what I expected, lots of slow moving traffic and red break lights, which is what you see above and the reason I try to avoid route 9 in general.
Then looking back down the other side of the hill, traffic was just as bad.Â People were just waiting to be able to wait at the traffic lights:
Of course some jerk whizzed pastÂ 15 cars in the breakdown lane and then put on their blinker to
cut everyone off “merge” when they realized the breakdown lane ended.Â Real smooth.
I never even thought of walking to route 9 before but itâ€™s not bad at all for a 20 minute walk on a nice day.Â Â Itâ€™s good to know there is another option to get there besides driving, especially on days like today.
