How Was Your Ride This Morning?

BOSTON (CBS) – So how was your ride to work this morning?

Not good? Did it take you two or three times longer than usual?

Were the roads properly treated or did you find yourself behind someone who has trouble driving in bad weather?

  • Me

    My commute from Mansfield to Concord took me 2.5 hours…. NOT GOOD!

  • Josh Wardell

    My 25-min commute from medford to essex took 1.5 hours instead of the usual 35 min. A large delay was caused by two lanes of 128/95 N closed so crews could use large equipment to push old snow up and over the side guardrails…something they could have done after rush hour (or any of the past 5 days).

    What do you mean “was”? I’m still trying to get to work, over 3 hours. It’ll probably be 4 times as long as my normal commute. Wish my company advised us to work from home, what a waste.

  • rightstuff

    I don’t get this either…where I work you can do 99% of stuff remotely from home. Still, the pressure is to show up at the dnager to yourself and others. Don’t get it. Most people aren’t even here yet, stuck on the road. They could have been working from home for the past three hours.

      danger is not dnager

  • Debbie Cerundolo

    495 was horrible, didn’t see 1 plow during my 2 hour drive which normally takes 20 minutes. 18 degrees out?! Where’s the rain??

  • giselle

    Hour and 45 mins from South Natick to Worc Rte 9 – via Rte 9. No one went above 30 and the slush is worse than ice – everyone was sliding all over, even the 4 wheel driver vehicles

  • PC

    2.5 hrs Westborough to Downtown BOS

  • Michelle Heller

    2 Hours and 10 minutes from Sharon Ma to Newton Centre MA

  • Ben Mayo

    2 hours and 15 minutes from fall river to providence- normally a 20 minute ride on 195.

  • MS

    2 1/2 hours from Uxbridge to Marlborough. UGH!

  • emk

    Took an hour and a half from Uxbridge, MA to Worcester. 146 was clogged w/ drivers going 5 mph due to slush and rubberneckers looking at accident in the South-bound lane. What a nightmare.

  • April

    2 hours & 45 minutes from Worcester to Sharon.

  • Michael

    My wife was stuck in traffic on RT1 going from Peabody to Boston for two hours it normally takes her 25 minutes she was not happy.

  • lisa

    awful. plymouth to braintee took over 1hour on rt 3 north. roads were slushy and icy

  • debbie

    awful-took me 1 hour – normally takes me ten minutes. from one side of natick to the other!!!!

  • Katie

    It stunk! Took me three times as long as my usual. From Framingham to Southborough. Rotten timing, snowing during rush hour = no time for the plows to work the roads. We should have all stayed home.

  • Jonathan B.

    2 hours from Medford to Framingham leaving at 7:50 A.M. Terrible!

    Although I guess it could’ve been worse, as I have a rear-wheel drive sports car!

  • Mike Eisenhower

    3 hours from South Boston to Southborough. Managers should allow employees to work from home on days like this…not looking forward to the ride home.

  • macmum

    This time of year I love my commute! 30 seconds from the second floor to the first floor office. But the roads out here in Middlesex County are awful now that they are turning to slush!

  • Debbie

    My less than 18 mile commute took me just about 2 hours.

  • J.K.

    I left Sharon at 7:15 and arrive in Waltham at 10:15. a 26 mile trip that under “normal” conditions takes 45 minutes took 3 hours today. I got off 128 in Norwood and took local roads all the way to Waltham. 95, 128 and the secondary roads were not that bad at 9AM this morning.
    Road conditions were slick, but not ridiculous. I saw sanders, but no plows (it’s debatable whether there was enough to plow).
    This is becoming a much too common scene. It’s a cry for better infrastructure and better (affordable and reliable) mass transit.

  • Kim M.

    Took me 1 1/2 hours from Wilmington to Burlington. Just slightly better on the way home…took me an hour. Ugh!

  • Rachel G

    Took me 40 minutes to shovel my driveway. I leave my driveway only to realize that it is impossible for me to leave my street because of the huge pile of snow the plow left at the end of my road. My commute was nonexistant… I couldn’t actually leave to get to work!

  • J.W.B.

    Totally agree with J.K. Couldn’t bother with commuter rail as I kept getting delay notices early in the morning. Took 2.5 hours to get from Easton to Longwood Medical Area. The delays are understandable with the weather and volume of traffic…but the apparent lack of treated roads in Boston, compounded by unreliable mass transit, makes for a horrible, no-good, very bad, day!
