Everyone and their mother…

…was going to El Paso tonight.  I happened to be over in El Paso, running errands and whatnot, and when I came back in the early evening, the lines at the bridge to cross in to El Paso were really, really long.  The DCL (dedicated commuter lane) was backed up even worse than it was at Christmas-time.

Why was this?  Well, tomorrow is Mother’s Day in Mexico, which is actually a federal holiday in Mexico, so I suspect that a lot of people were going over to El Paso to visit their mothers or to take their mothers out for a special evening.  Since tomorrow is actually Mother’s Day here, maybe it means the cards I sent to my mom and that arrived today actually got there early instead of late.  Hmmmmm.
