I don't suppose I'm the best of bloggers these days but perhaps I'm decent at being a radio guy so like the red wheelbarrow that makes all the difference. Or does "taking the road less traveled" make all the difference and it's just that a lot depends upon the red wheelbarrow?
Radio's like everything else. You gotta get away from it for a while.
And so it goes with Alexis and I flying to West Palm Beach and making our way to Boca, Ft. Lauderdale, Marathon Key and then culminating with five days of debauchery in Key West. It's supposed to clear the mind, make you come back even wittier and more keenly observant for your listeners. Instead I brought back some sort of virus that's landed in my stomach to remind me that you're not as young as you used to be.
Yesterday at 4:55am it was -8 degrees out so many schools were closed. Today, it's 10 above, yet still a lotta schools are closed. That makes three days in a row of school closings. That means that kids were off for two weeks over Christmas, then they came back for one or two days, and now they're offf again. Lots of frazzled moms, a ton of balogna sandwiches.
It's even colder than it was yesterday, so most schools are closed again. Here's some of the closings on the Indiana side.
Andrean High School
Aspire Charter Academy (Gary)
Bible Baptist School (Highland)
Bishop Noll Institute (Hammond)
I run radio stations and a streaming video network in Hammond, Ind., and write this blog.
