Traffic- It's hard to tell in this picture, but it was 7:45am and the traffic was getting REALLY congested. Darin started humming the Office Space movie's theme song where it was just dead stopped traffic or the stop & go kind. Either way, both annoying. Keep in mind- if GPS or Google Maps tell you that it takes 15 minutes to get there, chances are it'll take you 30-60 minutes depending on traffic and the time you go.
"Carpool" Lane- These lanes were created to decrease the much-congested highways of LA. These lanes are usually vacant (score) but it's not good when it's on one side of the highway, and you have to merge over 5-6 lanes of traffic to get off at the exit (sigh). Nonetheless, it is nice since it's usually wide open.
Palm trees- We left Ohio in its most beautiful time of year... the amber-colored leaves covered the ground, and lots of fall colors. We come to LA and palm trees are everywhere (and no orange and brown leaves anywhere):
