El Atasco – My Spanish Word Of The Day 1/10/2017

Disculpen que llegue tarde.  Hubo un atasco en la autopista.

¡Hola a Todos!

My Spanish word of the day is:

el atasco

traffic jam

Example Sentence: Disculpen que llegue tarde.  Hubo un atasco en la autopista.  (Forgive me for being late.  There was a traffic jam on the freeway.)

El atasco can also mean blockage as well as obstruction and obstacle.

I hope you get through your day today without obstacles or blockages of any kind (sin atascos)!

¡Un Saludo y Hasta La Próxima Entrada!
