Early Riser

I may have to become a morning person. It has nothing to do with ambition or industriousness; it's just the radical change in my morning commute. Normally I leave the house at 7:00am and get two the office at about 8:15am, but for the last couple of days I've been leaving at 6:00am to score some extra hours so I can leave early for Memorial Day weekend.

Leaving at 6:00, I arrive at 6:45. That's half an hour I don't spend stuck in traffic. While I often slow to a crawl (with frequent complete stops) on the way into town on the interstate at around 7:45, I never slowed below 55 mph in the last two days. It's surprising how much of a difference that one hour of start time makes.
