- Reaction score
In a situation where you have guests for the weekend and you get snowed in, do you offer an extended stay at a lower rate? How do you handle this type of situation?
And what a smart way to keep the guest happy, reduce the likelihood that they'll get caught in the storm tomorrow, and add a wee bit of income at the same time!We have one lonely reservation for this weekend, and it was originally only for Saturday (we have lifted our two-night minimum through the end of the year). They called yesterday to ask if they could add tonight on, so they would arrive before the storm - I extended the reservation at about a 50% discount for the second night. Obviously you have to look at your own situation but it can be a nice gesture to discount any additional nights for snow-ins..
We're getting the cold, but no snow. This AM it was 4 degrees. This afternoon the FedEx gal wanted to stand and chat with the door open. Sorry. Too dang cold for that!I just saw on the news that they are going to measure the snow in feet instead of inches. We're getting that cold front too, but it's only going to make our low temps dip into the upper 40s which is bone-chilling cold for Miami. And we don't have heat!! A few weeks ago when we had a cold snap, lows in the 50s, I had 4 blankets on my bed and was still cold. I'll be heading to the hardware store tomorrow for some small ceramic space heaters. Be safe up there with all that snow.
Oh, and what we've got right now in front of that cold front....14" of rain today! Good thing is that we never flood...we just keep floating! .
It would just be a blanket of white. I dug out a path for the mailman - so he would know where the steps were and not get hurt stepping in the wrong place. That was 30 minutes ago and it is already starting to fill again. Fortunately the mailman came right after I shoveled! I will probably walk to Chapel tonight. Easier than digging out the car to go 4 blocks! I am now doing the 11 PM to 12:30 AM shift and tonight will be ready to do more if the relief cannot get in. That is what we do here - rarely is a call made for a sub when someone does not show.Hopefully everyone will be safe in the storm! Post pictures of your snow, I would love to see them!!.
OMG! It looks like a rabid animal - how did you get the hat on it or is that why it looks angry?! Here in MI we look like we are in a snow globe - very pretty if you are safe inside - which is where I plan to stay!
PHOTOSHOP I suspect or else someone was really quick on the camera when the other person put it on his head.OMG!
