Horrible Commute Friday? Tell Us to Win Patch Gear
Commuters had to endure heavy snow, poor road conditions and less-than-considerate drivers to get home Friday night. Share your commuting horror story for a chance to win a Patch prize package.
If reports are to be believed, Friday night's commute home was not pretty.
Were you one of the commuters who endured sitting in a cold car for hours and hours, just trying to make it back to your family (or your pet)? Here's your chance to share that trip with everyone else and make all those work-from-home slackers (like certain Patch editors) feel guilty.
Post your commuting horror story from Friday night in this story's comments section for a chance to win a Patch Swag package that includes a tote bag, water bottle and other fun stuff.
Here are a few comments from readers so far from the Frankfort Patch Facebook page.
From Gretchen Kron Dust: "At 3:20p my husband began the drive home from 355 and Butterfield Road...he's still stopped on 80 West only 2 miles away from I-57, wipers frozen and saw three accidents so far...I guess I'll keep you posted on the total time! Maybe I'll be able to brighten his night with a SwagBag for his efforts to get home!"
From Heather QuasiEvil Brush: "My husband gets off work at 2. He works on the north side of chicago, he still isn't home. When I talked to him at 430 he still was in the city!"
From Jamie Lynn: "I thought about leaving my nice warm house, to walk down my driveway to get the mail, but the commute was too long. I love working from home!!! :)"
Well, some of them are more horrific than others.
The deadline to enter is 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21.
