I HATE Long Island Drivers!!!

We got a quick, nasty, fast moving, rain-to-sleet-to-snow storm yesterday afternoon. Thankfully, work let us out a little early at 3:30, but by that time the damage was already done. I live 4.5 miles from work (7km). Because of the gridlock caused by the idiot drivers here, that drive took 95 minutes. Yes, you read that right. That means I made an average speed of less than 3 miles/hour. I seriously could have walked home faster, even with the weather. I will grant that the winds were bad with gusts reported at up to 58 miles/hour. AAAARRRRGGGHHHHH!
Final totals on the storm: 2 inches of snow and less than a tenth of an inch of sleet/ice/rain/other precip...
Total time it took me to clean off my car this morning: 5 minutes.
Total time for the 4.5 mile drive to work: 35 minutes.

What is up with these people?

Sorry, just needed to get that off my chest....
