Traffic on I80
Just in case it helps anybody about to set out (and because I have the time to kill): there's a major accident on Route 80 in PA, at Exit 101. It looks like a semi has jack-knifed: something is diagonally across the road, facing the wrong way.

Of course, this is 1/4 mile ahead of us. *Sigh*. Reminds both of us of the time we were stuck on the Tappan Zee, behind someone who had to be airlifted out. (Yes, they landed a copter in the middle of the bridge.) This time, I don't think anybody is going anywhere until they bring a wrecker down the highway from the wrong direction...

Oh, I have that and use it frequently. But that doesn't help much when you're the first person at the accident scene...

I suspect it'll be cleared well before I get there, but still - ick.

(Reminds me of last year when I got a mile out from Pennsic on I-79 and there was a truck upside down with a huge plume of fire shooting out of it in the middle of, thankfully, the OPPOSITE direction's lanes.)
