“Detour takes me farther from my home long away …”

Chaska-to-Shakopee commuter Scott Heiserman put his frustrations, and extra-long driving time, to good use with the updated classic posted below. “I think a lot of people will relate!” he noted.

“For the 2nd year I, and thousands of others, have been inconvenienced by the Highway 41 and 101 bridge closings. Traffic is a mess! During the long hours in the car I came up with this tune. Robin Martens and I honed the lyrics and produced the video. It's a parody of an old familiar tune with funny graphics. Take a look. Enjoy!”

Scott -- Thanks for sending in the song. That was great.

I hope other people are able to use their extra drive time as creatively as you did.
