I for one applaude your wisdom and the courage to follow it. Yes you have a 
duty as Premier, but your first duty is to secure the safety of yourself and 
your family.  AmberLea

> Just a quick heads up.
> A few of you were expecting my lady and I at Coronation. Despite plans
> to attend in earnest, reason has triumphed in light of the oncoming
> weather here in Oklahoma. I will not risk travel with my lady under the
> forecast conditions.
> The route to Coronation from Oklahoma City is the I-44 corridor. This
> area is forecast receive light to moderate rain tomorrow with some
> freezing rain probable. We would no doubt arrive safely in Burkburnett,
> TX under those conditions.
> However...
> Saturday the freezing rain is forecast to continue throughout the day
> all along the I-44 corridor, and worsen in the late afternoon/early
> evening. 1 inch - 1 1/2 inches of ice accumulation is expected, as well
> as power outages and road closures.
> I can't afford to be trapped in North Texas for a few days. I also have
> no faith in the competence of my fellow motorists in weather like that.
> I've decided it's better to have folks irritated at my caution rather
> than horrified at my misfortune.
> Besides, there's only one lady like mine, and I ain't riskin' her.
> If it turns out to be a chilly rain and nothing more, I'll stand by my
> decision regardless.
> I'd hoped to perform "Anthem of the Arms" at Coronation, as well as
> provide the lyrics and tune.
> I will share that with the Kingdom throughout the year wherever it is
> welcome.
> I also regret that I shall not hear Eleanor's last piece for their
> Majesties Aaron and Britta.
> I have communicated my apologies and regards to both Their Majesties
> and Their Highnesses, and I apologize to you that the title will not be
> represented at that event.
> Those that recall my last tenure will know it is highly unusual for me
> to cancel such a trip. It is not a habit, I assure you.
>  I'll be available for insult and disdain at future events around the
> Kingdom. In the meantime, I'll just hunker down and hope the power
> stays on.
