We left out of Saint Louis this morning. Â Ethan and I were up early to pick up the truck from the repair shop. We hooked up the trailer and made our way back to the hotel to get Cindy and Keith. Â I wanted to be on the road before the next wave of the storm moved through. Â Along the way, I had to work in a few interviews for upcoming shows. Â The weather caught up with us before we left Saint Louis, mostly sleet and freezing rain to make our morning delightful! Â So, it was easier (and more safe) to just pull over than to try and drive through the sleet and talk on my phone.
I did the radio interview first for a show on February 8 in Virginia. Â Almost immediately afterward, I did a newspaper interview for an upcoming show in Rolla, MO. Â And that one was followed by a newspaper interview for the February 8 show. We grabbed lunch and hit the road again.
We stayed in bad weather most of the day. Â The storm moved across Illinois and into Indiana with us. As we moved through Indianapolis, it was treacherous to stay on the roads. Â We pulled over on the east side of Indy for the night. Â We are under a Winter Storm Watch/Warning from Indianapolis to Columbus, OH with 8″ of snow accumulation predicted.
Tomorrow, we continue to Princeton, NJ for performances there this weekend.
