Commute to work takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour, depends on the time when I leave and weather. It is true, most, southern californians can not drive in the rain, mist, drizzle, etc.. As soon as a drop of water hits the roads, all hell breaks loose and everything stops!!!!

I also have the option of setting my own workday hours, just as long as I do show up sometime in the morning..... which explains the huge 30 minute window above, so I do consider myself lucky. Another benefit is, I have every other friday off and the 30 minute to 1 hour commute is worth that if you ask me. One can get a lot done on a three day weekend!

I have thought about taking an undersirable job if it meant moving my commute into the 0 to 10 minute category, but I wouldn't be able to make ends meet. I would have to take 2 to 3 jobs to make ends meet. It is the cost of living out here... the sun tax..... :-)
