I haven't been able to post since we lost power last Wednesday. I knew it was going to be a whopper by the size and quick onset of my migraine. My son used to be fascinated by my weather predicting powers. I was one of the lucky ones who thought quick to find a hotel. The first Holiday Inn was very nice, the second was pretty yucky - the kind of yucky where you don't want to go barefoot on the carpet. However, I had an air conditioner and my puppies with me so I was okay. I lost power at the hotel on Friday. The staff was awful. I tried to explain the I couldn't do stairs (I was on the fourth floor). They said they couldn't move me because they couldn't clean the ground floor rooms. I told them I would take my linens and really didn't mind if the room was perfect. They said they wouldn't do it. I told them to check the stairs periodically because I had been very dizzy lately and if I tried to walk down, I could fall. They were really pretty nasty to me. I got to pay about $90 for the privelege. I live on the lucky side of the street that got power back over the weekend. No TV but I can make out faces on my Channel 4 soaps so I'm not complaining. We have to go emtpy the freezer and fridge today. Two trees down but my family is okay so that's what really counts.
