This is not news: “Traffic on the 405/101 interchange this morning.”
Is it ever not that?
Helicopters in the morning fly overhead to either:
- Capture yet another Los Angeles freeway car chase on a live feed,
- Cover the latest wildfire,
- Watch the traffic creep along the 405 freeway.
Maybe now that I live in a small town (where a helicopter flying overhead is a big deal), I feel that a chopper up above must mean big news. But here’s the big news: there’s traffic on the freeway.
This is Los Angeles. There’s always traffic on the freeway.
Forecast for tomorrow? Daylight.
Maybe I just don’t really care about making a detour. Or wonder if it’s worth it. No, I don’t care. Go sit in it, it will eventually move, and you’ll be on your (maybe-not-so-merry) way.
Maybe I need to Step Away from the Boxes and get out more.
Welcome to Los Angeles here. There’s traffic here. All the time. Big news.
