In the air today... In the ever-changing skies above the North Carolina coast, STYX members and their families were still looking for a sign from Mother Nature that they were still on course with the tour. Although a local interviewer told Tommy by phone this morning that the worst appeared to be over (Hurricane Bertha was downgraded to a tropical storm just before a direct landfall early this morning in VA Beach), George was still waiting to give the word to the STYX truck drivers and bus drivers. They all had a pre-arranged meeting point at the point where the highway split to either go to Virginia Beach or on to the next stop, Long Island, NY. There was a collective sigh when George, speaking to promoter Wilson Howard via U.S.Air's air phone, got the word that Virginia Beach was on. The drivers were told to get to VA Beach as soon as they could so that the whole process of "building the monster" (the complex STYX stage) could begin.
