Delaware is a tiny state.
It’s small, quite insignificant really, except for when you are on i95 traveling to the more exciting New York and further or you are heading south towards the finer beaches in Virginias, Carolinas and Florida.
I think that’s pissed the state off in a few ways.
(No, am refusing to acknowledge the Bethany and neighboring beaches just coz am a little ticked off with the state right now)
So what do they do? They go create fake backups. Miles together. To just to pay the $4 toll after you sit through the 7 mile long way before you step into PA or MD depending on which direction you’re headed, for HOURS together. Nope, no accidents. No construction. Just backup. Pile and shred the passengers patience. Get them to defy nature’s call to the end! Yesterday what was to be a 3 hour drive was dragged to 6 hours thanks to Delaware’s DOT. They in fact should have paid each car a $20 gift just to not go bersek and postal on their insanely long lines. Even the husband said that, and he’s the God of patience at home.
The only nice thing that happened was through the t-storms that hit in PA, we saw a gorgeous, bright, full arched, startlingly pretty rainbow. I don’t remember the last time I saw such a magnificent sight, and it was positioned in such a way that we were driving through it for a bit. Lovely.
Then to top it, we see another faint larger rainbow outside of this. How amazing is that?! The iphone sure came in handy and here are the pictures. I can tell you, these snaps surely don’t do justice. Munchkin was so suitably excited through the whole time. So was the mom.
Piece it all together and you have the whole arc.
