We left Nelson at 6:00am, and had a very strict schedule to get to Cranbrook to catch a flight to Edmonton via Calgary.
Violet found out that the mountain highway we were on was being shut down at 8:00am for avalanche blasting, so we had to rush in order to not get caught. To make matters worse, we ran into a bad snowstorm 15 minutes outside of Nelson. Apparently she had no fingernails left by the time we made it to Cranbrook (with only about 20 min. left before our plane was scheduled to take off).
Snowstorm pictures from the bus.
Here we are all lined up at the check-in counter at Cranbrook airport.
We made the flight by the skin of our teeth.
We packed into the back and were on our way.
We flew over the Rockies and landed in the Prairies.
We went to our hotel and had a rest before a 3-hour rehearsal with Edmonton’s Richard Eaton Singers, with whom we are sharing a concert.
Bill, Cam and I went to lunch.
Our combined forces, which is going to make for a real great concert!!
