Driving can be fun or a nightmare.  Jumping in the car and going on a road trip is fun.  Driving in the massive amounts of construction in our town is a nightmare. Driving across Texas takes forever but there is amazing and beautiful scenery across the state.  Driving in the big cities is a nightmare.

So when it comes to driving in Texas, I guess we have it lucky.
