Fans on the road

It looked like a tough ride for fans coming in on Route 322 this morning.

With rain and drizzle persistent, traffic was crawling up the mountain at 8:30 a.m. and was backed up almost as far as Milroy.

I was heading in the opposite direction for an appointment in Harrisburg, so had a good view,

Those fans were OK, though, since it was a good three hours before kickoff.

Further along, fans who left late had trouble when two trucks collided in front of the Clarks Ferry truck stop. That was about 9:40 a.m. and anyone stuck in that likely had trouble getting there by game time.

Fans who stopped in Mifflintown got a bargain on gas at $2.43, a good 15 or 20 cents cheaper than Happy Valley. Amazing, isn't it?
