Tale of 2 Traffic Cities

My family and I moved from Wilmington to Atlanta for a job transfer and lived there for 3 years before moving back here. A 16.5 mile round-trip commute cost me 2.5 hours out of my day every day because to be able to live in an affordable area with better schools, we had to suffer a commute. I'm glad we're back living here now. But, Yesterday reminded me a little of Atlanta traffic and how the infrasturcutre wasn't prepared for the rapid growth, which led to the daily jams. Then I was thankful it's not an everyday occurence in Wilmington... for now. If this keeps going, which it will, look for a lot of these ads: For Sale: 5 Year old 3 bedroom, 2 bath ranch, with 1 car garage in established community with swimming pool, tennis and walking trails, just minutes from Historic Downtown Wilmington and Area Beaches. Convenient to the New Wal Mart, shopping and dining. Lower property taxes and a quick, easy commute accross the bridge. Sound Familiar?
