PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s the question many co-workers ask one another: “How was your commute this morning?” For most people, it hasn’t been as simple as it used to be thanks to the weather we’ve been suffering through.
Shadow Traffic Reporter Randy Chepigan has been describing road conditions for 33 years and feels your pain.
“If you don’t have a lot of choices in the routes that you can take if there really aren’t all that many alternates available to you, you really have very little choice then to sit through what awaits you,” Chepigan said.
Tierra doesn’t drive but she says there is one word to describe her commute.
“Crazy!” she said. “Buses and trolleys have been delayed. Slow. Can’t make it to places on time.”
Hattie’s commute been similar.
“It’s been hell,” she said. “I have to commute to get to one stop walking and then have to wait for the subway. And there is ice everywhere! I’m tired of the snow and I’m ready for it to be over!”
They are all looking forward to commuting in springlike conditions and temperatures.
