I AM SMOTE BY THE GODS OF WEATHER
A few months ago, Further Seems Forever released its first album with Chris Carrabba in 10 years and made me the happiest little clam in the ocean. Then they planned a small tour, which would come to New York City only days after my 30th birthday. This was good.
Then Hurricane Sandy hit. The biggest victim? Me. Further Seems Forever couldn’t get to the east coast and had to cancel the show.
The show was then rescheduled to tomorrow. I bought tickets immediately. I would have my revenge.
Now I’m in Canada. I’m supposed to fly out tonight, but my flight is cancelled. I’m on a later flight, no word on that flight’s status. The weather is only supposed to get worse overnight.
I will not miss this concert, no matter how hard the gods of weather may attempt to thwart me.
Hopefully that’ll mean a delightful, albeit delayed, flight out of Toronto tonight. If not, it’ll mean me in a car for eight hours hoping to outrun the snow.
I leave you with the words of Chris Carrabba. Please wish me godspeed on my journey.
“This winter is lasting forever, at least for tonight, and I know that you’re never leaving me again. No, not again.”
