Yesterday I was blogging about how I love to go to shows at the State Theater downtown because I can get there and get home in about 10 minutes.  We are really spoiled by the lack of "big city" traffic.  Some of my friends live and work in Chicago and it sometimes takes an hour to an hour and a half to get to work depending on where they live.

Anyway, someone asked me recently how long it takes me to get to work at 4 in the morning.  If I hit all the lights starting with Oakland & Milham to I94 and all the way up Sprinkle from the round-about to Gull Rd, it takes me about 11 minutes.  When I tell my "big city" friends that, they want to kick me in the nuts.  Now I'm curious about the average commute time in the Kalamazoo area.  Let me know.
