|JR returns from his first Florida|
visit with the Houn Dawg Band
With our blessings, three nineteen and one twenty one year old start a road trip from Ft. Worth, TX, to Pensacola, FL. Two are in JR's pickup, two in the nice Camero or some sort of sporty car. No problem. Our son had shown his ability to function as a responsible adult or at least we were confident in him. After all, the only thing that would probably happen on the road was rain. Wrong. This was the year the south received a freak snow storm in March. Ten inches in Georgia and Mississippi.
We saw the weather problems on the Weather Channel. We were anxious. This was spring of 1993. Cell phones were not handed out like dime store candy as we do now so no immediate text or call. JR told us later they had the opportunity to pull the 21 year old's car out of a ditch a time or two. Our son's response was, "He grew up in St. Louis. I thought he should know how to drive in snow as good as me!"
