This past week, we had a real Passover miracle. The two pictures are from a few hundred to a few thousand yards on either side of our house. The map shows the path of the tornado. Mature hardwoods two feet in diameter were snapped off like breadsticks. The blue star is our house. The tornado literally lifted up and passed over our house.

The other miracle is that we’re still eating leftovers. I call them passed-overs, and it may be how the Jews survived the exodus. It’s substantial stuff.

Unfortunately, Moses had T-Mobile and wandered in the desert for forty years looking for a signal. We’re better prepared for this weekend in Fargo, Winnipeg, and Minneapolis. The tour starts Thursday in Fargo and the dates are below with more detail.

Speaking of tour dates, I have some sad news. We hate to cancel anything ever and we’ve played gigs we shouldn’t have. However, when I started tallying up expenses for our northeast tour in May, I realized it was going to cost us around $5600. As in, we don’t make any money. We pay $5600 to play seven shows.

Of course, we can’t do that. We’ll pay $5,600 to play at Keith Richard’s 100th birthday, if that offer comes in. Other than that, we regretfully have to back out of these dates:
