On the road back to school
The way back to Mary Washington was a very long way there, and I don't mean because of traffic, which is a story in its own right. We left around 4 or so, and to make a long story short, we didn't arrive on campus for the better part of an hour and a half to two hours. Traffic was horrendous, like, the worst I've ever seen I-95 South. I mean, it was red light after red light; it was like a freaking parking lot out there. And to top things off, we got to Fredericksburg with 0.2 of a gallon of gas left-we were that close to running out of gas on the highway. I had mentioned to mom that we had a quarter of a tank left, and we thought that all would be well with our trip down south. Yeah, didn't quite work out that way. Our "low gas" signal was messing with us towards the end, as it would flicker on very briefly, then turn off. We were hoping that it was working, because we'd at least have some knowledge of how much gas was left in the tank. Though in the end, all worked out, so we were happy about it.
