Well that was fun… four hours trying to get to Leeds for work; oh blessed M62…

Approximately four hours this morning it took me to travel from Macclesfield to the Leeds office. An early start saw yours truly discover that late running M62 roadworks and a broken down vehicle in roadworks (closing two lanes) led to a 15 mile tailback of basically stationary traffic from junction 25 (Brighouse) to junction 21 (Rochdale). On adopting a somewhat alternate route, by coming off at junction 22 and fighting my way with every other poor soul who had the same idea, through Ripponden, Sowerby Bridge, and finally Halifax, I managed to pick up the M62 at junction 26 (Bradford).

I fully intend treating myself to a large McDonalds meal.
