      Sorry you are stuck, but the government does less damage this way. Hope you find a way to make the best of it.

    Sorry for you who are enduring difficulties in travel and power availability. It is not fun-- except, maybe, for the kids.

    Some of us are in places where we are used to snow and used to occasional power and traffic limitations. It is entirely different in areas that are not prepared for it.

    I live on the "snow line" which means we get a little snow every year for a limited amount of time. BUT, we know about it and expect it-- so do the local agencies.

    We know how to adjust our driving, put on chains if necessary and just stay home for awhile. We live without electricity for short periods. The snow plowers are on our main roads when there is 1/4 of an inch, which is sometimes more of an annoyance than a help. At least we know they are there when they are really needed.

    In places that don't get the inches of snow-- they don't have  even have snowplows or people who know how to use them available. Restoring power can be more difficult and take longer. It's not your fault, it's just the way it is.

    Hope you are not seriously disrupted. Any unexpected condition can be stressful. Hope you are making the best of it.

      But you are stuck in a place where the people don't know how to deal with it. That may be part of the problem. At least Holiday Inn has breakfast-- one's I've been to.
