Hello Blogworld citizens.
Just a quick update to let you know why I will not be on for at least a few days.
Well, that cozy snow day turned into an icy hell overnight. We lost electricity and with no alternate heat source we had to get a hotel room to avoid any previously mentioned Donner Party situations.
The luxurious Budget Inn was the last room available in our vicinity- and we called within 20 minutes of power outage! Our power is out until at least Saturday. Oh- and guess what? This Budget Inn has price-gouged during this snow and ice emergency, and are charging us $65 a night for the smallest room in the world. (Isn't that illegal? It's actually categorized as an emergency. It's just wrong either way. Bastards!) I've stayed in Times Square for this price, and the room was just as big. No way do they charge this normally, not in this small town.
I have some crazy pictures to share when I get my own internet back... some day.
By the way, the pretzels were awesome, as was the hummus. Too bad I'll have to throw everything out of my fridge and start over when I get to go home.
If you are also stuck in this mess- be careful! Talk to you soon, blog comrades!
