Well, we’re gonna get whacked, if the National Weather Service is right. Starting sometime late tonight and lasting through most of tomorrow, a winter storm is expected to drop between eight to twelve inches of snow on Central Minnesota. That’s supposed to be followed a windy Monday. What with the falling snow followed by blowing snow, the weather service says that travel will be difficult from tonight through Monday.
We may not get out of the house tomorrow, and that would be disappointing. We have tickets for a performance tomorrow afternoon of the Harlem Gospel Choir at the Paramount Theatre in downtown St. Cloud. That’s about two miles from here, which isn’t all that far, but if the snow comes as fast as forecasts say it will, our driveway will likely be impassible by mid-afternoon tomorrow.
We’ve talked about taking the city bus, which stops just up the block and around the corner, but I have a sense that if the storm is as bad as anticipated, even the city buses might not be running. And it’s possible, I suppose, that the Harlem Gospel Choir might not even get to St. Cloud. We’ll see. All we can do is wait for tomorrow and the snow.
So since we’re waiting, here’s Chuck Jackson with a hopefully titled tune for a day like today. “Good Things Come To Those Who Wait” bubbled under the Billboard Hot 100 in late 1965 and early 1966, peaking at No. 105, and it’s today’s Saturday single.
