Stuck on This Highway With You
A foot of snow stranded hundreds of motorists on the interstate in Kentucky last night. Local churches opened their doors for those who could get off the highway, and state police and the National Guard reached out to travelers who couldn’t.
It was definitely winter for the Endless Summer Band, who are on their way from Indianapolis to Johnson City, Tennessee, but found themselves stuck overnight on I-75 near Mt. Vernon. They were at a standstill for 15 hours. To pass the time, they rewrote the lyrics to the song “Stuck in the Middle with You” by Stealer’s Wheel to reflect their situation.
You can see a couple other videos they recorded during the jam at Business Insider and follow their progress at Facebook. Oh, they’ve moved a little, but still haven’t made it to Tennessee. The band is on their second traffic jam in southeastern Kentucky. Yes, that’s where I live, but I’m at home. (Thanks, Brother Bill!)
