Weekend Update

I hope you all had a great Christmas. It would be a nice way to send off this rotten Year of our Lord, 2008. A year when even the hot cocoa was poison. In a few more days we shall have a clean slate; a new beginning. 2009 will be better. It must be. But no worries. Take a look at what is in the news over the weekend:

  • Expect another round of truly psychotic weather today; 70+ degrees in late December, humid, crazy thunderstorms, deadly lightning, hurricane winds, maybe a flash of ice/sleet and then some flooding. Tomorrow it will be -30 degrees. Get ready for a serious sinus attack or a swine flu epidemic.
  • The foreign-owned electricity company here in Louisville wants $24 million from you to pay for the September windstorm damage. I guess they will have to get in line with everyone else, eh?
  • This report on Fox41 tells how some locally-owned businesses are dealing with slow sales. I spoke with a local restaurant owner last night about the state of the economy. Needless to say, he is worried. Try to do your part to help out. Visit a locally-owned business or restaurant this weekend. That is money that stays here and is spent here. If you are into barbecue, try Porky's Barbecue on Valley Station Road. Good people and good food.
