It doesn't take long to make toast

We had a gig scheduled for tonight. I'm not sure why, but Jilda and I both felt uneasy about it. I know most people think we're all New-Agey and what not, but that's the way we roll. If something doesn't "feel" right we move on.

This morning, the weatherman was forecasting severe weather this evening. We watched the feeds until 10 a.m. and then made a management decision to reschedule the gig. The owner of the coffee house was OK with it and we let our songwriter buddies know.

As it turns out, the weather still looks bad, but it's arriving later than the weather-folk said it would. But here's the deal - I still think we made the right decision to reschedule. 

Rewind to this morning during our walk. It was oppressive even at 8:15 a.m. One the first lap, I saw this oak limb lying in the middle of the barn road. Squirrels do this in the summer with oak and hickory trees. I guess they are keeping their teeth maintained.

I wasn't there the day before but already it was a dry as thatch. It doesn't take long to make toast in this weather.


  1. Sometimes you just have to 'trust your gut'. Mine has saved me from some nasty situations before now.

  2. It's good that you were able to reschedule. Better safe than sorry.

  3. Keeping everyone safe is a prime directive (is that from Sci-Fi?). Making the decision when you get that 'gut feeling' is important. Glad you are all safely in your own homes tonight.

  4. It's better to side on the side of caution than being sorry later. I think you did the right thing. People's lives are more important than entertainment.
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. Good call but I bet the coffee house missed yall.
    Its dry here too but now they are calling for rain everyday for the next 2 weeks.

  6. I have those glops of leaves all over the place right now. There oaks on two sides of my house and the squirrels have been busy! Hope your storms were not bad ones.

  7. I like to trust my instincts. YOu done good! I know you guys love that chance to use your talent, Thanks goodness you have many chances.
    Just 'relapse!' ;-)

  8. We've cancelled trips and such when things just didn't feel right. Maybe nothing would have happened but I always want to go with my gut feelings and not worry about what others think. Hope your weather is OK tonight.
