I am terrified of the tunnels there! My gma lives off Ocean View, and I am severely claustrophobic, as well as terrified of deep water, so imagine my terror when driving there for the first time and seeing the last exit fly by before hitting a tunnel!! As for today...it's over thankfully and you and your little ones are safe:) Relax and try to enjoy your evening!!!

I don't like them either, I'm just glad by the time I actually got to the tunnel traffic was moving and we didn't get stuck inside.

Quoting Just Ames:" :shock: :( Happy Birthday."


Thanks....



And I just got a call from my GMAs house. Thought it was her calling to tell me happy bday....nope. It was her neighbor calling me to tell me that the ambulance just left to take her to the ER because she cant breathe.

when you mentioned the tunnel I knew that had to be the nightmare you were speaking of! I only go once or twice a year but that part is the most stressful part of the entire 6 hour drive from NC

I have to take them all the time because I live just by the tunnel and my kids are seen on the other side. I've been stuck before but never EVER have I been in a traffic jam like this one. I turned my car off and only started it back up to warm up from time to time. I even got out and smoked a cig at one point. It was insane!

:( That stinks, I'd be pissed if everyone remembered my sisters birthday and not mine, it's different when it's your kids.

I am dude. This is the exact reason why I took my bday off my FB to see if anyone actually remembered or if it was FB telling them.

From what I understand a semi hit a pothole in the tunnel blowing a tire, he couldn't stop obviously kept driving and somehow caught his engine on fire. I know when I was browsing FB bored out of my mind this picture was posted

When I drove by inside the tunnel they had one side blocked off fixing a GIGANTIC pothole so putting two and two together that's what I believe happened.

OP, enjoy your wine. Hopefully the kids will stay out of your hair today so you can recover from that crap. I seriously can't believe somebody being so bold as to get out and start threatening me AND my child!
Kudos to you though. You showed more restraint than I think I would have in that situation. My blood would have been boiling the second my child was brought into it. I'd like to think I'd be able to ignore it though. Hope I never face that problem!!
