Last weekend, my son and his dance team mates had a dance competition in Indianapolis. There was a weather warning about snow coming. We really thought we'd be able to drive out of it. HOWEVER, we were sorely mistaken. 4 out of 5 of us (that were following each other home) gave up after 2 1/2 hours. Indy to Lafayette is usually only about 45 minutes... but it was such an awful, awful drive. About 16 miles from Lafayette, I called the Hampton and spoke to Clarence, the GM. He agreed to hold 3 rooms for us until I could get in touch with our fellow team mates on who wanted to stop. He was more than willing and then a few minutes later I asked if they had 4th. We were a shaking mess by the time we made it to he hotel and he had our rooms ready to go for us!
After we got checked in, we ventured across to the Olive Garden next door. On our arrival back (it was almost midnight), I got my car stuck in the parking lot. After about an hour, and Troy from maintenance's help, I finally was unstuck and in a parking spot. What an exhausting day!
Next morning, woke up to find my car had been plowed in by snow plows and there were HUGE snowy ice balls in front of my car as well as a foot or more of snow. Thankfully, Patrick and Roger from maintenance, came out and dug my car out for me. There were 2 big balls of frozen snow that it took BOTH of them to remove. Hampton doesn't know just how much I appreciated them. Although I had our older son with me, I hadn't seen our other 2 babies in 3 days and this momma was so anxious to get back to her babies! So thank you all so much again Hampton in Lafayette!! So much appreciated;)
