WATCH: Stranded Colorado Band Entertains Fellow Drivers
Imagine you're trying to drive through a Colorado canyon. Interstate 70. Midwinter. and something happens at the front of the line of traffic.
Everything comes to a halt.
Well, if you happen to be a band, or stuck near a band, then you make the most of it.
While returning home from a show in Keystone the night before, the Elk Range was stopped for a few hours in Glenwood Canyon Colorado.
So let's just throw a party.
Curtis, the guitarist and vocalist, was not with them unfortunately but Ken, Betty and Hugh decided to have some fun and entertaining the patiently waiting travelers. (Denver 9 News).
This just goes to show that life is what you make of it.
You can sit in your car, mumbling, grumbling, and complaining.
Well, that's just miserable.
Who would want to hang with you?
OR - you can start a party with the other stuck drivers.
Besides, this makes a great video.
Denver 9 News posted 2 videos.
This next one looks like the moment that the band first turned up their instruments and got started.
You might be thinking, but isn't it freezing cold out there?
Oh, yeah, you better believe it.
But start jumping around to the music and you won't mind.
This is the time of year that anyone driving should keep an extra layer of warm clothes and other supplies in their vehicle, in case they get stuck for a while.
It's not uncommon for someone to get stuck overnight, or longer, in sub-zero temperatures.
A big box of hand warmers can be used for more than just warming the hands.
Other supplies should include some of these basics.
One gallon, per person, per day for three days.
Three-day supply of non-perishable foods.
First Aid Kit.
Tools & Supplies to get traction or help dig out.
Musical instruments to start a jam session with.
