Michelle Obama has been snowed out.
The former first lady scrubbed her Friday night appearance at the Tacoma Dome because of the big Northwest snow storm expected to arrive in the City of Destiny just about the time she was scheduled to take the stage.
The event, “Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama,” has been rescheduled for March 24. Tickets to the Friday appearance will be honored.
“With the snow storm on its way into Tacoma, my biggest priority is making sure everyone stays safe, and that’s why we’ve decided to postpone my tour event to March 24,,” Obama said in a tweet. “I can’t wait to see your all next month, and in the meantime, stay warm and safe out there.”
The result is the Northwest is getting lots of Obamas during March.
Ex-President Barack Obama has a March 5 gig at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, sponsored by the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade. Michelle Obama appears barely 16 days later for an “Intimate Conversation” on March 21.
She will now do Tacoma three days after appearing in Vancouver.
The former first lady’s autobiography tops the New York Times bestseller list. She is embarked on a 15-city tour of the United States and Canada, with six European stops also scheduled.
Michelle Obama is scheduled for another “Intimate Conversation” Saturday night in Portland. No word yet on whether that event is going ahead.
