National STRIKE today in France!

YEP!! Today is a National Strike Day in France! HOW FUN!!! Instead of going up to Paris for fun today, I'm staying home. Alex is staying home, too, because when there is a strike it can take up to two hours on the freeway to get up to Paris... So, it's not worth it to go in for just a few hours and spend four hours in traffic!! Today is a day where IF the metros and RERs are running- it's VERY limited, so you get scenes like THIS below... I have done it once before ... but now that I know what it's like- NO WAY!!! People get very vicious and even violent!! It's horrible!!!
Anyhow.. Alex is giving me a lift to work later this afternoon, so that's nice!! Have a nice Strike Day, everyone... Be careful!!!


STRIKE!!! STRIKE!!! STRIKEEEE!!!!!! Yep!! It's gonna be one of THOSE kind of days today!!
