I'm in So Cal, and I also have a 30 minute commute one way. I have an option of taking a train, but if I do that it would take me almost two hours door to door. I'd have to get to the train station, then get on the train (3 minute train ride), then figure out some way of getting from teh train station to the office since there is about a 10 minute trip from the station to the office by car and taxis are a rarity and hte local shuttle does not go to my office. Then do the whole thing again in the afternoon. And considering the trains don't run very frequently I'd wind up getting home later. And of course I'd miss the fin of driving my 270hp 9000 cse.
