Well, it sure seemed like a real long time.
Yesterday, we arrived at Tampa around 3 PM and got off I-75 at I-4 and headed east. Then,almost immediately encountered a traffic jam through Tampa. The worst spot was where a lane ended and the beautiful people decided they shouldn't have to wait like the other peons and drove forward to cut in line. I REALLY hate when they do that.
The whole I-4 was under construction pretty much all the way to the causeway over the bay. Then, we were around US-19 which was also torn up and traffic-heavy. Lots more waiting. And, all of this was in a steady rain, making it even less fun.
If anybody ever tries to tell you there isn't a lot of traffic around Tampa-St. Pete-Clearwater, they are lying.
