The traffic gods did not smile upon me last night. After work, we were to drive to Birmingham to see The Casket Girls at the Bottletree Cafe. With a photo pass in hand, I was looking forward to photographing a band I enjoy. A photogenic band at that.
Anyway, in Friday after work traffic, we were looking at a 2 hour drive from home to the venue. The show started at 9pm, and I felt like if we left at 6:30 we would make it there on time. But, no, a tanker truck exploded (no one injured thankfully) causing I-65 to shut down in both directions. We sat in traffic for almost for about 90 minutes before turning around and heading home. It wasn't to be. Thankfully, tickets weren't terribly expensive, $26 total, but I was disappointed I didn't see their show.
