Twenty WGN on the road and attain live here in the states skyline studio high atop Chicago blizzard. This is kind of the first day that we've had like an appreciable amount of snow. I really right. Was it wasn't so bad the snowed one or two other times? But this is kind of bad, but nowhere near you got Bob kind of we've seen some Roger to of reminiscing about the great snowstorms our legacy of suffering when it comes to snow here in Chicago. And none of these are or anything. Really, right. So I think we have to give up that mantle. Maybe it's global warming. It's sort of works for us. Maybe not so much for for Miami. Or any of those apocalyptic movies where the whole world floods, but for for us here, it seems to be, you know, I don't know. And I know it goes in stages we had some some pretty bad winters a handful of years ago. So but not that bad. She had a hard time getting in. I heard that you were your toughen it actually, it was pretty smooth. Right. It was very smooth surprisingly smooth actually left a little bit early because I wanted to make sure not to be stuck someplace not necessarily stuck in the side of the road. But even in traffic, right because sometimes you get some implement. Weather and then things get slow on the roadways. See wouldn't that be terrible for me to be stuck in traffic for the on the road show? Right. We could just call you. And you would be on the road. It'd be totally walking the walk should be called in the studio with Dan. So we've got a great show on tap. We'll talk about it a little bit with Scott beforehand, and we're gonna do we're gonna talk a little food a little tailgating, we may have Angela cabinet rowdy and talk Super Bowl tailgating, and some cool things they've got planned for the summer with our on the road road trip.

Maybe you know, he's a guy that's won the Daytona five hundred the Indy. Five hundred the Formula one world champion. They see these kinds of things really set it apart because those are such different disciplines when it comes to driving. It'll be excited to talk with him as we close in on the fiftieth anniversary of him winning the Indianapolis five hundred and the speed we've got a bunch of things coming up for him so excited to talk to Mario about that sheer Lazar. Actually, you you drive on you can drive right. I can't. Okay. So you ever get to the gas station. Now, the gas stations more things to more people not only is it a place to get gas. Maybe some snacks. But right at the pump. They they have you know, TV they have do entertainment. So you're pumping. Awesome. Somebody pops up on the screen like, hey, what's going on? And they show you something fun. You know, maybe penguins with sweaters, or you know, who knows what's going on. And maybe some news. That's happening. Maybe sports Shira Lazar. She is.
