Ice, Ice, Baby
This is a picture of my car right after I got to the hotel in Schenectady after driving through Wednesday's ice storm. By the time I got into town it was pretty much a rolling ice cube, but these are the perils we face to entertain our audiences.
It reminds me of that U.S. Post Office motto, which I just had to look up: "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat nor gloom of night..."?
Really? "Gloom of night" is in there? How did gloom of night get up there with snow and rain? Was gloom of night a viable threat at one point?
"Attention passengers, our overnight flight to Los Angeles has been cancelled. It's just too gloomy out there."
Heck, we comedians do our best work in the gloom of night. It's our friend. It's that early morning sun that scares us.
P.S. Thanks to the folks at Union College, the show was a ton of fun!
