Last week a catastrophic winter storm that produced ice, snow, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures hit parts of the United States. I live in one of the states that got hit the hardest. Over 100,000 homes and businesses lost power and the total damage is still be counted. Crews from North Carolina have come in to help restore power to those who still don't have power almost a week later.
I feel very grateful and thankful that my family is safe and that we only lost power for a day.
Because we have a young son and my wife is pregnant we played it safe and got a hotel room on the day that our power went out and this is where Corky's post begins...
Question: Is it OK that i bitch about the mousetrap that I found in our hotel room? I mean we were in a nice joint, only about 120 bucks a night. I get that almost every hotel was booked in Louisville due to the damage caused by the storm, but when I pay 120 bucks a night I expect to be in a hotel that doesn't have rodent issues.
I found out about the rat deathtrap after I did some minor interior decorating for the convenience of my young son. I found it under the night stand next to the king size bed in our room. Due to the circumstances I wasn't too outraged over the mousetrap nor did I complain. I'm just glad Max didn't find it before I did.
Another reason why I wasn't too outraged over the mousetrap is because of the phenomenal HDTV that was in our room. Part of me wouldn't have minded watching the Super Bowl on that TV, but had we have had to stay in the hotel room for that long I'd be out a 1200 bucks. I could have gotten tickets to the game for that price thanks to the economy.
The last year or so has been a bit of a wild one for us and I'm beginning to understand why there are so many Bible thumpers out here.
Anyway, I would just like to thank all of you who continue to read the log and make sure to mark your calendars cause the 2009 State of the log is coming VERY SOON!
