Well, I was supposed to work on the New Years Strip yesterday afternoon before the big party.
But after getting out of church, I found the future famous WNC ice storm of 2017 had covered all the roads in a thick sheet of sleet induced black ice. I tried to inch down the road, but found it impossible to navigate the icy death trap in my tiny, little, and light-as-a-feather Ford Escort. I ended up sitting in a freezing car in front of a closed Subway shop for two and a half hours, waiting for my dad to come pick me up in his SUV and then another 2 and a half hours inching home behind nearly parking lot traffic. By the time I got home, it was 11:30 at night. No friends, no party, and no comic. All because of an ice storm that somehow happened without a hint of precipitation.
All I can say is “Thank you Lord for getting me home safely.”
So, yeah. Awesome way to start out the new year! *Gives Thumbs Up*
And now you know… “The rest of the story.”
