MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -
Christmas music is great. It's festive, cheery, seasonal, etc. But when you're in bumper-to-bumper traffic, staring at brake lights through an iced-up windshield and Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You" pops on for 50th time this week, you need something else. Switch it to classical music and you will be transported to your very own luxury car commercial.
There's always another way. You will definitely need to deal with stop signs, stoplights and pedestrians, and it may even take longer than staying on the highway, but a change of pace can help.
40 is the new 20. If snow is falling, it's going to take a lot longer to get to and from work (that's no secret). Expect double (or even triple) the commute time, and anything shorter is a little victory.
