Carmageddon II

Carmageddon I wasn't much.  Neither was Carmageddon II which occurred this weekend.  We slipped into Los Angeles on Friday before the main transportation artery on the western side of Los Angeles was closed and mostly stayed away from the freeways on Saturday and Sunday.  By the time we were back on the road this morning heading north, the 405 Freeway was open again.  Everything was back to normal in the Sepulveda Pass.






You're welcome.

Glad you made good plans to avoid the 405 closure nightmare!!

It has been more than ten years since I have been to LA, and the memory of driving then was that it was tense and sooooo crowded. My older sister moved to Burbank to be closer to her children last year so I need to be planning a trip south in the next year or so...sigh. Blessings on you and yours,
Gracie :)

Ah, yes. Even those of us nowhere near the 405 were forewarned of its impending car-tastrophe. Actually, I think carmageddon happened to me in August when, between roomie and me, we had a rebuilt transmission, four new tires, four new shocks, a couple of oil changes, and a car registration to top it off.

Wow and here I didn't even realize it was carmagedon II. I don't think they did a very good job of getting the word out... but then it seems everyone knew but me :) Loved seeing the picture of your handsome son!

Road closures! Aren't they a nightmare!

Have caught up but just cannot cope with leaving any more comments as the 'robot' thing is almost unreadable!

Hope all well with you.
