Way back in '89 I was finishing up my first job for Butler Telecom at Waynesville, Ohio in early February. Called my boss in Dallas up to see what he wanted me to do. He said to get back to Arkansas as quick as I could as there was a massive storm system stretching from Texas all the way to Ohio and it was sleeting hard in Dallas.

I headed out ASAP. When I was driving through Cincinnati it started storming. I was listening to the classic rock station in that town, whose call letters I have long since forgotten. Sure enough "Riders on the Storm" came on. I've never been a huge Doors fan but that moment has stayed with me for all through the years and "Riders..." is one of my favorite songs. The last 90 miles home of the ~600 trip were through sleet. When I looked at my car next morning I had 6" spokes of ice coming off the center hub of the wheel.

I also the groovy beat of "The Ghost Song".
