Saying our goodbyes, we left on Monday for New Orleans in what became a torrential interstate downpour. Our fatigue after the celebratory weekend soon transformed to anxiety mixed with terror as we witnessed one car skid across four lanes of freeway into a ditch, several accidents, and slowed to 20 mph with emergency lights on at times with close to zero visibility. For whatever reason, listening to "Rainbow Connection" repeated times on our new Muppets CD soothed our gangled nerves along the way. As Woody Allen had it right: "Whatever it takes."
