    Every morning Anna commutes

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    Every morning Anna commutes about two hours, during which she can snatch some sleep, if she finds a vacant seat.

    teechar,
    Thank you for correcting my mistakes.

    I am only wondering if the comma after "morning" is mandatory or if it could be omitted. I wanted to use a comma, but then thought that maybe I could omit it, but probably that was wrong.

    I'd accept the sentence without the first comma.
    I am not a teacher.
