Adventures in the Snow…

I was singing “let it snow, let it snow, let is snooow!”

Until I was in it. Yes, submerged in the snow in Moberly, Missouri for a live shot. Just how cold was it, you might ask? Well… cold enough to freeze the live truck. So cold, in fact, the live truck is still sitting in Moberly because we could not get the mast down. Here’s how it went down:

1. Missed call around 12:30 a.m.

2. Answered call at 2:38 a.m.

3. Was informed I was going to do a live shot in Moberly.

4. Got up, got dressed, got ready…

5. Drove to Moberly.

6. Proceeded to freeze.

7. Set up live shot equipment with the truck operator, Josh.

8. Couldn’t feel my fingers.

9. Did a live shot around 5 a.m.

10. Lips went numb so I couldn’t say my last name correctly on the air.

11. Lost feeling in my toes.

12. Got reprimanded by salt truck men because we parked in an inconvenient spot for them.

13. Cleaned up all live truck equipment.

14. Re-set up live truck equipment. We realized the live truck mast wouldn’t go back down so we couldn’t move like the MoDOT men asked.

15. Lost the feeling in my face.

16. Tried unsuccessfully two more times to do a live shot, but the frigid temperatures prevented us from having a good audio connection with the station.

17. Died.

18. Was revived.

19. Received class credit.

Sweet.

Have a frosty day – drive carefully!
