  • A few comments this morning from Globe readers: 
     
    "Typically I leave Maynard at 6:30am for a 60-minute drive to South Boston. I end up on the Pike every day for some portion of the drive, except this morning. Today I took Route 2 to Sorrow Drive, and did the final few miles through the city. Total drive time 85 minutes."
     
    "I was surprised I couldn’t get on Mass Pike eastbound from Cambridge or Allston and took Storrow Drive instead."
     
    "I am commuting from Newton Corner to Copley Sq. via Mass Pike. Usually leave home around 7:30 am. Usually it takes me under 15 min, today it took just under 30."
     
    "Took the train at 6:25 this morning from Ashland, usually take the 7:30, and this was just as crowded, slightly moreso than Friday's 7:30 even. The pike was already at a standstill by West Newton by 7:10, glad to have left ahead at the cost of an hours sleep. Work is fairly empty here at the state offices however as of 8:50, feel that many people got held up in this."
