How bad was your evening commute?

Thursday's snowstorm caught Long Island and the rest of the tri-state area by surprise, snarling traffic and forcing commuters to spend extended amounts of time on the roads or rails. We want to hear about your evening commute. How long did it take you? Where were you traveling to and from? How long does it normally take you? And most of all, tell us how you coped with any added stress?
