This wintry blast (don't let anyone from Chicago hear you call it that) has claimed its first victim: The season opening of the Orange Show.
Tomorrow night was to be the premiere of Heartworn Highways, a tribute to Townes Van Zandt, but it's been canceled "because Saturday's forecast is cold and wet," according to an announcement. A trophy-making workshop was also postponed.
"We are disappointed that we had to make the difficult choice to cancel both events," the statement said. "When the weather is great, The Orange Show is an amazing place to see a show. When it's not, it's not."
The Van Zandt tribune has been rescheduled to June 13. We're guessing cold won't be a problem.
