I’ve also heard a few stories that will make some great fodder for future blog posts, such as dealing with emergency issues and making sure inns are prepared in case of natural disasters such as this one.
I know that personally this past storm has been somewhat of a challenge: without power for 3 days and while getting to local WIFI was fairly easy, finding a place to plug in to recharge a laptop battery was somewhat of a challenge, with people waiting on line to use outlets at local businesses that retained power.
On the bright side, this gave me a chance to finally get rid of all of those mystery condiments that had been in the fridge for awhile, i.e. that homemade pickled asparagus that a neighbor gave us (that had always looked a little dubious anyway) and the 1/2 gallon of teriyaki glaze I had made up awhile back for chicken wings. Apparently I forgot I was only cooking for 2 and had a major flashback to my kitchen days.
