About the Awful Commute Wiki


I've set up this wiki as a place where people can chronicle their commuting stories from hell, or provide links to their own blogs or sites where they've already shared the stories.

Great idea! An observation and a suggestion.


About three years above, I thought about moving to Lowell, MA but decided to stay in Cambridge because I could walk to so many important places in my life. My understanding is that http://walkscore.com/about.shtml has been set-up to help potential homebuyers find "walkable communities."

Not everyone has that luxury, hence need for a decision making tool that helps homebuyers access communities and specific listings based on their individual commutes.

Do you know if such a tool exists already? If not, why limit your wiki to a single snow storm?


If you do want to focus on winter commutes, I think it would be fun to ask readers (who are old enough) to contribute memories of the Blizzard of '78. Maybe you'll find a few who can offer first person accounts of their commutes yesterday, and 30 years ago?

Wonder if anyone is already doing anything to commemorate the 30th anniversary next year? I lived in Montreal at the time of the storm, but was amazed by the size of the snow drifts when I visited two weeks later.

Nothing like today's quick meltdown.

PS. Thanks for post yesterday re: Twitter Posses. Did you see my blog post: <a href="http://realestatecafe.blogs.com/real_estate_cafe/2007/12/twitter-posses.html">Will homebuyers create their own "Twitter posses"?</a>
