An hour isn't too bad. Sounds weird saying that, but I think for a lot of folks living outside Seattle, having to commute into downtown Seattle (or eastside), an hour is pretty common.
I live 19 miles from my work in downtown Seattle, takes me any where from 50-75 minutes.
Catch up on some audio books, new music, sports radio. Won't be bad.
Man, that sounds horrific.
I enjoy driving. I dont think i'd have any problem at all with an hour and a half commute if i lived 75 miles away. But 19 miles in an hour, every day, I would definatly move or find a new job.
I just found this job!
Most of the jobs that I'm interested in, or companies I'm interested in are downtown, or downtown Bellevue, or Redmond.
Either way, its fight I-5, or fight 405. Either way a grind. Life working in the Seattle area I guess.
I'm in the same boat as thousands and thousands of other people slogging up from the south end. Or the thousands and thousands of people creeping slowly south down I-5 or 405, from Edmonds, Bothell or Lynnwood.
Fact of life. And trust me I've tried variety of trains, light rail, buses, driving. It all sucks.
