Snow Stomps On Valentine's Day Plans
MONTGOMERY COUNTY -- Valentine's Day was supposed to be one of the busiest nights of the year for local restaurants and night spots. However due to the snow, many restaurants were busy, but they weren't packed. Some say up to half of their customers either canceled reservations or called to say they would be late due to the nasty road conditions.
Accidents during the evening commute contributed to traffic slowing to a crawl. It took our crews more than 30 minutes to go less than a quarter mile on S.R. 741. The traffic mess lasted for hours and interferred with Valentine's Day dinner plans.
"A couple times I put on the breaks and I kind of slid a little bit," said Lori Moore of Centerville.
The weather definitely put a damper on the day of love, especially for people involved in snow slide-offs.
"We've had some people show up 15 minutes to one hour late. But we've made it work and we're happy to have them," said Carvers manager, Josh Dotson.
"Thought about staying home, but we decided we'd go and just take our time to get here," said Jordan Tangeman of West Carrollton.
Some customers at Carvers, and other popular restaurants did cancel their reservations, not wanting to venture out. But others put on a brave face, determined to get their Valentine's Day steak.
"It's not blizzard conditions and anyone will do anything for a little bit of love and food," said Moore.
"Of course it's going to be worth it. We're here for the steak. We want a big steak!" said Tangeman/
Restaurants say many of the customers who canceled, rescheduled for Saturday or Sunday.
