10. Driving up the 5 last night from Solano Beach
Going down there at about 7:00 P.M. I mentioned to my wife that I couldn't remember the traffic being that light. Coming back at about 10:30 through Mission Viejo there was a time that the freeway was clear for a mile in front of me. Never in my 20+ years in Southern Cal has a freeway been that wide open other than New Years day at about 6 AM headed up to Pasadena.
