By the time the Ozrics finished playing, it was getting dark.
Unfortunately ProgDay's budget doesn't allow for a lighting rig,

Monday I had to turn the car lights on around 6:45 and I still
had a couple hundred miles to drive. That sucked, because I'm
half blind in the dark.
On the plus side, having ProgDay a week later than normal probably
knocked a few degrees off the thermometer. And didn't a hurricane
just blow through there last week?

Thanks Rich, you gave me my first and biggest laugh of the day! Biscuitville NC.

Well Bob, since you asked - like absolute hell, but around 11 am we made the trip to Biscuitville and it put everything right. While finishing up my sausage and egg biscuit i get a phone call from my mom, she asked "are you still in North Carolina" and i answer "well, right now we're in Biscuitville" and she says "ohh, that's nice, how's the weather?".
Upon leaving the restaurant we run into Phil and Danny, erupted in chuckles all over again, the whole thing was a pretty surrealistic e xperience.
