The Tampa Bay area is comprised of Tampa, Clearwater, St Petersburg, as well as a few other small communities.
The Tampa Bay area is so sizable that there are numerous different countries represented in the metropolitan area. Tampa Bay area is made up of Manatee, Sarasota, Polk, as well as Citrus counties. There are more than 3 million people living in the Tampa Bay area. During the afternoon, all of the roads leading out of Tampa Bay are filled with cars. I happen to live outside of the Tampa Bay area, despite the fact that I work in St Petersburg. Sporadically the traffic can be unnerving! Last Thursday afternoon, I was headed house from St Petersburg. I worked until more than four in the afternoon, as well as our afternoon was filled with meetings as well as paperwork. The last thing I wanted to do was stand in traffic for 3 hours, but unfortunately, that is exactly what occurred. A sizable tanker truck jackknifed on the interstate, closing all more than four lanes of outgoing town traffic. It took hours to scrub up the mess, as well as traffic was backed up for 13 miles leaving Tampa. There was crude oil all over the interstate as well as it was a fire hazard. I sat in the automobile waiting for the traffic to move. The local radio station kept us informed about the accident. By the time I got house from St Petersburg, it was almost 9 in the evening. I barely had time to make dinner as well as relax, before I had to head to bed. On afternoons love that, I wish I could hot snooze in the afternoon, wake up at 9, as well as spend the afternoon in bed with the crossword puzzle.
