traffic home was the most brutal i've ever experienced. i spent an hour after the game tracking down a lost, drunk friend around uptown charlotte, sat on 85 for an hour, took another hour detour to eat waffle house (a mistake, oof) and jumped back onto the interstate only to find it just as locked up three hours after the game as it had been after the final whistle.
End of the thanksgiving holiday traffic. Few years ago, trying to get home to Raleigh, sat on 85 for 6 hrs of stop and go. Miserable. Swore than I would stay overnight or take the train than deal with that again.
