After the Storm

LOUISVILLE--Hurricane-force winds blew through the Louisville area on Sunday, and five days later you can still see the effects. Massive trees were snapped off during the storm, and though Valhalla Golf Club never lost power, utilities officials estimated it would take 10 to 14 days to restore power to all customers. We noticed one guy dealing with the aftermath when we were getting a late bite to eat at our hotel. He and his family have been without power at their home and have been staying at the hotel since the storm hit. But he was in an upbeat mood as he walked away from the bar with a bucket of beers . . . and a baby bottle.
