St. Patrick’s Day 2002, it was a Sunday and it snowed over 26 inches that morning, it should have been green! I had been preparing a corned beef and cabbage dinner for 200 people for the St. Paddy’s Day party at Club Oasis (I was owner/operator at the time) yet only about 50 -60 guests were able to attend due to the snow fall.
My buddy Bubba Arndt, a regular attendee at the Club “O” came and got me and brought me down about 10:00am to get things started and then started driving around town picking up staff and other guests to bring back for the fun.
We all had a great time and the food, live music, prizes and green beer was enjoyed by all. I can’t remember which band I had playing that day, I think it was the “Rebel Blues” yet can’t be sure. If you know, please help me remember!
So flash forward to St. Patrick’s Day 2011, it’s been close to 40′ these last few days, streets were bare, snows been melting and it was starting to look a lot like spring time. Last night I made the mistake of telling my lovely bride that it’s still going to snow at least once more before it’s actually spring. OOPS!
So how much do you think we’ll get today?
