Where the hell is everybody?

The wife and I (yes, we carpool) heading out for work at our regular time this morning, but apparently we're the only ones going to work today.

We crossed over I-20 on our sneaky back way to the Downtown Connector, and cars were just zipping along. Then we get on the Connector, and you'd have thought it was 6 a.m. on a Sunday. The wife said she felt like Tom Cruise in the beginning of Vanilla Sky (alone in Times Square).

So what gives? Is there some kind of school holiday going on that's keeping moms home with the kids? Traffic was lighter than on bank/government holidays, so I don't think that's it.

Anybody? Are you people even at work today?
