I guess our grizzled Angeleno was correct. As Baron says, it was a non-event as everyone seemed to stay home, and the job was completed 17 hours ahead of schedule. OK, all you game theorists, what happens in Carmageddon 2? Will everyone see that this was a non-event, and not stay home, thereby bringing about the Carpocalypse?
I took the Metro, and I'm not sure industrial parks and the backs of strip malls that are mostly on the orange line route could be considered scenic. The red line felt like a bonafide subway, and older than it seemed. It wasn't terribly crowded.
