OR SO THE ROAD ADVENTURE CONTINUES
(Indianapolis) Part of the mission here is to get an
early look at the Superbowl festivities. Oh boy are
some Super Bowl partiers going to be in for
a shock, if the early February weather is
like this. Indianapolis is great at hosting,
staging mega major events, making sports fans
feel right at home, putting on a party, but...
Most Super Bowl revelers equate the big party down
with palm trees, maybe even leisurely strolls along
the beach, or avenue.
Here is a quick thought about that in the form of
MORE FROM THE ROAD
Finally got out of the Phoenix airport into the air
a little before 8PM. Arrive Indianapolis at 1:02 AM.
The jet gateway was frozen, so there was that time
when all the folks, eager to deplane, are standing
tummy to fanny balancing carry ons and craning their necks
to see the front of the line, as if that might by some
power, expedite the process.
That first blast of 12 degree weather was a balm of
sorts on this weary traveler who started his forward process
at 3:45 am PT.
Thank you for rapid reservation service at the car rental, except I'm stopped at the gate by the security guy who
radios in to the main office that Mr. Cochrun is in a car without paperwork. A few minutes of back and forth
and I end up backing up, finding the "right" car in the
"right slot" and off onto the freeway which is
snowy and ice covered. It's been a while for that experience as we don't get snow or ice on the Pacific Coast Highway, Highway 46, aka The Green Valley Road, or our stretch of the 101. I keep looking for pavement and
believe the signs that war of ice on bridges and overpasses.
To the hotel, finally, knuckles a little tight from
the grip on the wheel and to the room. Lights out at
SUPER BOWL AND SUPER WEATHER?
The walkway to the parking garage
gave first glimpse of the wonderland outside.
Morning dawns. 12-14 inches of snow an
hour north. School delays and icy roads
Ah, the joys of travel.
See you down the road.
