Five things to do when stuck on the F3 freeway ...

... due to bushfire (see here).

1. Hop out of car and obtain packet of pizza shapes from friends in the car in front of you.

2. Stand in the middle of the road taking video footage of the crawling traffic (and then run to catch up with your car after the traffic has moved on somewhat).

3. Pull over and stop completely and hop out for a break by the side of the road, thus letting more and more traffic pass you and delaying even further what is turning out to be at least a 4.5 hour Sunday afternoon (/evening/late night) trip from the Central Coast to Sydney.

4. Sing Christmas carols (which are sounding sooo last month) to try to send your screaming kids to sleep.

5. Stick a handwritten sign out your car window stating "Honk if you're ....." (actually, I might leave that phrase unfinished - use your imagination).

(Please note: the author of this blog was only personally involved in one of the above activities, but did witness the others).
