Things had been going fine for most of the year. That is, until the ice storm of 2018.
On November 14th, area outages plagued 125,000 of us in the Kentuckiana area, and no extra safety was granted to us, your friendly folks of Quills Coffee. We caught up with a few Louisville regulars to get their opinion on the matter. Shanon Miller, who had been without power since 5am Wednesday, tells us, "My day 1 patch for Red Dead had just finished downloading right before it went out. Coffee was the only thing that kept me level-headed until we were back up and running, and I finally got to meet my horse."
Laura Stitzel says, "a watched kettle never boils." While this isn't exactly applicable in the situation, a kettle can't boil if there is no power so we don't exactly disagree with her.
Trees snapped like toothpicks, and a darkness covered the city like a total solar eclipse. It was in that moment, a moment where cold creeps what once was a blanket of warmth, that too our roastery fell dark. What joy, another near-perfect roast left cold, alone, and forgotten. That is, until now.
Want to remind that angered person in your life again and again? Why not treat them to a direct product of the very storm that forced them to throw away all those stored up leftovers in the fridge. Lump O Coal is back, and is as terrible this year as it was last year. Our ghost of Christmas past, back to haunt us and you for another year.
