Connecticut Easter rush

Had an invitation to a birthday party and dance in Connecticut yesterday evening. Of course, because of Easter travel and the rush hour combined, it was the worst traffic I've ever seen in Connecticut. There was a 17-mile delay on I-95 from around the state line to Norwalk. There were two accidents less than a quarter of a mile apart. Switched over to the Merritt Parkway but that too was stop and go.

Picked up two caches along the way: Green Field Farm Nano at the Green Field Farm open space in Fairfield, and Logically Speaking... at Bertini Park in Wallingford. The latter is a puzzle cache that should not be a problem to anyone who knows circuit notation. I knew it once but had to look it up again.

Got to Durham and met up with bearknight and kgraleopard at their place. Then mikesedge arrived too. After around 8pm, we drove over to a VFW hall in Wallingford for Louis Furrywolfy's birthday bash. Didn't know most of the folks there but got to meet the birthday boy. Danced for a bit. Was in fursuit for some time even, although the hall was a little warm for that.

Got home at around 2:30am. Not much traffic by that time. I was surprised that the gas station near home was still open. Not surprised though that gas prices had gone up by 4 cents in my absence.
