Ah, if it were only true that the stock pens were the sole places where you saw traffic jams this big in Texas. Alas, we drivers feel like cattle when we venture out on highways in our biggest cities come rush hour. Exchange the cows for cars, and this could be 5 p.m. on Houston's Katy Freeway, Dallas' Central Expressway or I-35 in Austin.
One of the good things about a smaller city such as Waco is that while we have a rush hour, it's only on one street through the center of town, and it's over by 5:30 p.m. If you lived here, you'd be home by now.
It's nice, let me tell you. We're spoiled that way.
