With the arrival of Mother’s Day weekend comes graduation and end of the school year. While the elementary, middle, and high schools in Virginia still have several more weeks of school left, the college school years are coming to an end. This means that people will begin taking their summer vacations and hopefully reducing the number of cars making the daily commute to and from work each day.
I don’t currently have plans for a summer vacation, but I still enjoy the benefits of a slightly less crowded commute. Most likely, the commute will gradually get lighter each day or week until the middle of June when the last schools let out. Unfortunately, it won’t last forever. Schools have a closer start date at the end of August or beginning of September.
