Random Fact of the Day: The Outerbridge Crossing

Many New York and New Jersey residents have heard of the Outerbridge Crossing - a road the connects Perth Amboy to Staten Island. What many people don't know is how this bridge got its name.

Many assume that its because it is a remote bridge, or something to that effect.

No, in fact it was named after the first head of the New York Port Authority Mr. Eugenious Henry Outerbridge. They realised that calling it the Outerbridge Bridge would be a bit daft, so instead it became the Outerbridge Crossing.

Tolls are collected in the eastbound direction only. The cash toll is $8 for passenger vehicles. EZ Pass users only pay $6 during off-peak hours.

The Outerbridge Crossing carried 32,438,000 vehicles (both directions) in 2006, or approximately 90,000 each day.

A Good Cry

So I had a good cry tonight.

A good get it all out cry.

I hadn't had one of those in a long time.

I was curled up in my bed, on top of my covers, and when my boyfriend heard me he jumped in behind me and held me the whole time.

I do feel better, better than I have in a while. I still feel like I'm drowning.. or like I'm in a dark tunnel, and I'm still afraid of what's going to be at the end, but at least I feel a bit less burdened... like I got a gulp of air.

Hopefully I'll be back and that will sustain me for a while, but I'm not sure. I just know I won't hold in so hard my next big cry.
