It rained and rained and it rained some more.

Weary commuters were slowed down by a single vehicle accident eastbound on State Route 16 by the Burnham exit just before 8 this morning.

The backup was felt all the way to the Purdy Bridge, the situation made worse by a steady rain.

Similar scenes were unfolding in other Western Washington highways and roads, delaying thousands of commuters from their work.

As I headed up the Key Peninsula Highway earlier in the morning, radio broadcasters were ominously predicting traffic snarls.

They were not kidding.

Stay safe out there Longbranch.
