Despite plans <BR>to attend in earnest, reason has triumphed in light of the oncoming <BR>weather here in Oklahoma. I will not risk travel with my lady under the <BR>forecast conditions.<BR><BR>The route to Coronation from Oklahoma City is the I-44 corridor. This <BR>area is forecast receive light to moderate rain tomorrow with some <BR>freezing rain probable. We would no doubt arrive safely in Burkburnett, <BR>TX under those conditions.<BR>However...<BR>Saturday the freezing rain is forecast to continue throughout the day <BR>all along the I-44 corridor, and worsen in the late afternoon/early
<BR>evening. 1 inch - 1 1/2 inches of ice accumulation is expected, as well <BR>as power outages and road closures.<BR><BR>I can't afford to be trapped in North Texas for a few days. I also have <BR>no faith in the competence of my fellow motorists in weather like that. <BR>I've decided it's better to have folks irritated at my caution rather <BR>than horrified at my misfortune.<BR>Besides, there's only one lady like mine, and I ain't riskin' her.<BR>If it turns out to be a chilly rain and nothing more, I'll stand by my <BR>decision regardless.<BR>I'd hoped to perform "Anthem of the Arms" at Coronation, as well as <BR>provide the lyrics and tune.<BR>I will share that with the Kingdom throughout the year wherever it is <BR>welcome.<BR>I also regret that I shall not hear Eleanor's last piece for their <BR>Majesties Aaron and Britta.<BR>I have communicated my apologies and regards to both Their Majesties <BR>and Their Highnesses, and I apologize to you that the title will not
be <BR>represented at that event.<BR>Those that recall my last tenure will know it is highly unusual for me <BR>to cancel such a trip. It is not a habit, I assure you.<BR><BR>I'll be available for insult and disdain at future events around the <BR>Kingdom. In the meantime, I'll just hunker down and hope the power <BR>stays on.<BR><BR>~Finnacan<BR><BR>"I never wanna know a day that's over 40 degrees!
