My transition to Seattle has been really smooth. Except for my commute that is. It’s fairly horrendous and much worse than my drive to Genentech down in Sam Francisco. I’m pretty vocal about how displeased I am with it, but I am trying not to let it sour my first impressions of my new city.
On Tuesday, approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes into my commute I came around a curve and saw a beautiful rainbow. It was one of the most gorgeous evenings, with bright sun shining through clouds and the clean feeling that a day of rain brings. With the addition of a rainbow, I had a hard time continuing my nightly “I hate Seattle” mantra.
Don’t worry, I was driving so slow there was no risk in taking this picture. Total commute time: 1 hour, 25 minutes. But who’s counting?
