Don’t Eat Yellow Snow -Tom’s Thrilling Drive to Work –

More Rock While Ya’ Stay Home & Make Snow Ice Cream. For the rest of us, it’s More Rock While Ya’ Work, as always. The 7am drive to work took longer, but I made it across the Red River, and into Shreveport, without any issues. The Clyde Fant Parkway was a fun drive, because Bobby Cook was playing “Don’t Eat the Yellow Snow” (Frank Zappa) on 98Rocks. Hearing Zappa, driving on a snow & slushy Clyde Fant, was like listening to the music, while on one of the State Fair thrill rides. My secret to success, to making it work?
- 4WD on “snow” mode
- 35 mph (max), driving from South Bossier to Agurs in Shreveport (between downtown, and the downtown airport)
- I’m always accused of driving like an old man, so I just turned up 98Rocks, with Bobby playing “Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow”, as the wipers kept time with the song
- Avoid some vehicles, that you suspect the driver is a rookie at this snow/ice stuff
- I did not text, while driving.
- That’s about it.
