“President Obama Made Me Late!”  (Yeah, Right)

President Obama’s visit to the Twin Cities this am — apparently, he’s speaking at the Honeywell plant in Golden Valley — is playing havoc with local traffic, at least on the west side of town.

And it’s not just Highway 100, which appears to be closed (at least between Highway 7 and 100).

Because of all the detoured traffic, anything in the vicinity of 7 and 100 is also congested.

If you’re going to be 5-10 minutes late for appointments, I suppose there are worse excuses than “I got caught in the traffic jam caused by the Presidential motorcade.”

P.S.:  If you didn’t know the reason for the congestion, you’d initially guess a big accident.

Except that you don’t usually see helicopters when that happens.
